Watch for it! After more than a year of planning, research, designing, writing and editing, 4,000 copies of Byron's Sesquicentennial magazine are printed and will soon be delivered to Byron households.
Byron's Sesquicentennial magazine chronicles 2017 celebration events, briefly covers highlights of city history since 1867, portrays life in the city today and offers a glimpse of the potential for the future.
The Byron Sesquicentennial Planning Committee, above, worked with the Byron Area Historical Society to complete the project.
As you read the magazine, you will gain an appreciation of the work the committee members did to make this possible.
The Byron Review is proud to have had the opportunity to handle production and printing.
