Tonganoxie hoping TV celebrity will make surprise visit for this weekend's sesquicentennial celebration
Tonganoxie is celebrating 150 years of existence today and Saturday. Organizers have been pulling out all the stops to spread the word. They're even trying to get a TV actor to make an appearance.

The Tonganoxie Sesquicentennial steering committee is asking for help in the volunteer department for this year's 150th anniversary celebration, which will be June 10-11 in downtown Tonganoxie and surrounding areas.
The Tonganoxie Sesquicentennial is still about 2 1/2 months away, but a chance to have a memento of the festival — and possibly some cash in one’s pocket — is now available at a few locations around town. Sesquicentennial buttons are available at various venues throughout Tonganoxie: Community National Bank, First State Bank and Trust, Gambino’s Pizza, Flashbacks, Talette’s Cafe, The Downtown Drugstore, Tonganoxie Chamber of Commerce and City Hall.
