Arlene Pritchard remembers the centennial celebration for Linwood in 1967. The longtime Linwood resident perused through a local newspaper, the Eudora Enterprise, and all of its coverage of the milestone celebration at the Linwood Pioneer Festival. She recalled the Tonganoxie, Bonner Springs and De Soto newspapers covering the event also. And, an Army band from Fort Leavenworth even came down on a Sunday afternoon in June 1967 to celebrate the milestone.
