Okaloosa County Celebrates its Centennial in 2015. Want to get involved?

A Centennial Committee has been formed to begin the conversation about how to celebrate
Okaloosa County’s 100 year existence in 2015. A few ideas the Centennial Committee is
planning include a geocaching tour, a passport game to discover a hundred things to do and
see in Okaloosa County and a map with parks, places and events.

The committee consists of citizens in government, chambers of commerce, historical
museums, military members and more, who have formed subcommittees to set goals and
promote the history and celebrate what is great about Okaloosa. We welcome community
input, ideas and participation.

What would you like to do in your business, place of work, or
community to highlight or celebrate the Centennial?

Okaloosa County was the 52nd county created by the Florida Legislature, and became a county
on September 7, 1915, following a referendum by voters. The county was formed from
portions of Santa Rosa and Walton Counties.

To get involved contact Kathy Newby, 850-651-7515, or knewby@co.okaloosa.fl.us.
