We reported last week on the history of bank robberies in Byron. It is a subject that was also developed as part of Byron history when the city celebrated its Centennial fifty years ago, as evidenced by this poster. Clearly, the citizens of Byron have always had a sense of humor and have enjoyed having a good time!
This look back at history will be a feature of the Byron Review for the duration of the Sesquicentennial celebration.
We encourage our readers to patronize the businesses that are helping make this feature available as part of Byron's Sesquicentennial and to recommend them to friends and associates.
We also continue to invite visitors, residents, former residents, business owners and others with stories about Byron and life in the Byron area to share those stories with us so that we can present them to everyone.
This is your community, it is your celebration, join in the fun and learn more about your hometown and the surrounding area at the same time.
If you don't have a Sesquicentennial button, be sure and get one and wear it to let people know Byron is 150 and has your support. Buttons are $2 and available at many Byron businesses.
Don't miss the exhibit at First Security Bank, where you can learn more about Byron banking history and see the gun used in one of the robberies.
Friday, July 21 will be the first outdoor movie, Toy Story, on a large screen set up north of City Hall. It's free, bring family and friends for a fun event.
