The Centennial Committee is being contacted by many folks with personal photographs, memories and stories they wish to share during this centennial year. While it is not possible for everyone to be contacted individually, we do want to share your memories as best we can.
Short historical pieces may be submitted, in your own words and under 200 words in length, for publication on the SoapLake100 website and Facebook page.
Photos may also be scanned or copied for submission. Please include a short caption to go with each (think who, what, when, where, how). Also include your contact information, name, phone number, etc.
Send your material by email to: info@Soaplake100.com
or mail to: Soap Lake Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 433, Soap Lake WA 98851
Soap Lake would not be what it is today without the influence of many past and present people. Recognizing all of them would be an unmanageable task, but we'll pick at least one representing each decade from 1919 to 2019. Maggie Waltho, our mayor from 1946 to 1950 is the first Memorable Person to be honored.
Come find out how the plans are coming and maybe find a way to get involved.
It might be something you can do without meetings or leaving your house!

These will be added to a printed calendar of events to be published and distributed in January 2019
The committee is currently focusing on several celebration dates:
The committee is also facilitating story collecting, archiving, displaying, and publishing. We have some great people starting this effort.
Contribute your photos and stories. If you like being organized, join in the process!

To start off our next 100 years we’d like to encourage sprucing things up around town.
Planning the Soap Lake Centennial Celebration takes a lot of participation by many people. This website is intended to serve both as a source of information on Centennial activities and a place for those people or organizations planning events throughout 2019 to coordinate with the Centennial Celebration.
