Reminder: Parker's 50th Anniversary Upcoming Celebration

50thAnRibbon600-230

All Parker residents are invited to celebrate our city's 50th anniversary on Saturday, March 30, 2019, from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm at City Hall.  You will enjoy tours of the buildings while browsing through memorabilia and scrapbooks.  Historical maps, souvenirs, and old directories will be available to see as well as visiting with your friends and neighbors.  Special commemorative souvenirs will be given to all guests.  Parker is a special place, and we have a rich history to celebrate and share.

At 3:00 p.m. there will be a short ceremony with dignitaries including state, county and neighboring community officials.  Past Parker Mayors and City Council members will be recognized.  The police department, city hall, and fire department will be open for all the residents to tour.

The City of Parker was incorporated on March 22, 1969, and we have grown from less than 1000 residents to a city estimate above 5000.  The committee is collecting any pictures or memorabilia for the celebration.  Pictures will be copied and returned quickly.  If you have any items to share, please contact Mary Anne Seale at 972-424-6095 (maseale1@verizon.net) or Lori Newton at City Hall 972-442-6811 (lnewton@parkertexas.us).
