NORWICH – Dozens of Norwich city residents gathered at the Northeast Classic Car Museum on Rexford Street over the weekend to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the community they love and call home.
The official kick-off of the year-long centennial celebration for the City of Norwich was held Saturday. The event – put together by volunteers on the Norwich Centennial Committee – featured a number of guest speakers, city representative, pictures of Norwich past, and of course, a birthday cake to help usher in the 100th year since Norwich was first recognized as a city.
Attendees were also given the opportunity to tour the museum at a special 25 cent admission price. According to organizers, the venue was the perfect location to host the event as the American automobile is a reminder of simpler days.
