4,360 attended Saturday’s 350th kickoff

Did you check out the kickoff event Saturday for Stafford’s 350th anniversary celebration?

Reporter Rob Hedelt was out there–find his article here. Photographer Suzanne Carr Rossi posted a slideshow of more photos here.

The county estimates that 4,360 people attended the all-day event. A temporary ice skating rink–really an “enhanced polymer” surface–was a big draw. Visitors also learned about the county’s history, viewed trees decorated by students and watched a time capsule filled.
