SMYRNA – The Town of Smyrna will have a night of celebrating tonight, as they commemorate the town’s 200th birthday and the 90th anniversary of the Smyrna Volunteer Band.
A special event will be held to celebrate. The event will mark the first band concert of the season, a tradition that began 90 years ago. In addition, the Town of Smyrna will hold another bicentennial celebration, featuring the town’s bicentennial cancellation stamp.
The band will warm up at 6:30 p.m. in the library, and the Smyrna Postmaster will set up on the library’s porch to offer a special stamp cancellation with the bicentennial cancellation stamp. Cancellation stamps are used by the post office to cancel the postage on envelopes. A special cancellation stamp has been created to honor Smyrna’s Bicentennial.
