Help us celebrate the 100th birthday of the Willey Building – a resilient building in a resilient community!

This Celebration is an opportunity to honor of the history of our most beloved building and to recognize how it connects us as a community. Over many decades, the Willey Building has been a constant in a sea of change. Generations have come and departed yet the Willey Building has stood fast in service to us all. At the dawn of its next century, we are taking the opportunity to show appreciation and further the legacy created by Charles A. Willey and the Ladies of the Judith Lyford Woman’s Club so many years ago.

The Willey Building Committee has launched a GoFundMe Campaign to raise funds to pay for this event. Funds raised will cover the cost of the memorial bench, the band, wagon rides, the publicity, and all the costs involved. Our goal is $6,000. The celebration is free to the public, so please contribute whatever you can. Thank you!
