Grow a beard, bake a pie or dress in any manner of attire from the 1800s to the 1970s and you can enter the Tama 150th Anniversary Celebration contests with a deadline for entry of June 30.
And you can join the fiddle contest right up to the contest.
The events are more of the attractions planned for the Tama Sesquicentennial themed "Postcards from Home - Tama Past and Present" on July 27 and 28 in downtown Tama.
John Loftus is pictured in the Loftus Grocery at 8th and Siegel in Tama in this 1950s-60s photo from the collection of former resident Cheryl Woodworth, now of Sherman, Texas. The neighborhood grocery was a favorite of those attending the nearby Tama and later Tama-Toledo and South Tama high schools.
Events continue to be finalized according to Sesquicentennial Committee members Deb Kouba and Rosemary Brady who reported to the Tama City Council Monday night.
A street dance sponsored by the Eagles club, Kiddie Peddle Tractor Pull sponsored by the Future Farmers of America, food and refreshments galore capped off by a spectacular fireworks display over Cherry Lake are just a few of the many activities planned.
