Rockyford is turning 100 years old next year and with a centennial anniversary, there needs to be a big party.

"June of 2019 is when we've set our date for our centennial anniversary party in Rockyford," explained Mayor of Rockyford, Darcy Burke. "That will coincide with our annual Bull-a-rama."

The centennial anniversary is going to be celebrated in a way that reflects Rockyford's rodeo history.

"We thought it would be fitting that we have a bit of a rodeo while we're celebrating our community's 100th anniversary." continued Burke. "The two of them will compliment each other and bring some people back to their roots."

"We have put together a group of volunteers that will be the organizing committee. They've got some really great ideas," Burke outlined. "They're in the very early planning stages, talking about parades and a free pancake breakfast., just some community events celebrating that 100th anniversary."

Burke and the volunteer committee will be meeting monthly to gear up for next year's centennial celebration. Burke reassures, within six to seven months, there will be some finalized plans.
