Happy Birthday Versailles!

It’s time to have a PARTY!!!!!

The village settled first by Virginians and Carolinians looking for westward lands was platted in 1819 by Silas Atchison. Jacksonville (now Versailles) will be celebrating its Bicentennial in 2019 and what is a party that doesn’t have a plan? Not much fun.

So we’ve got the plan; under the eye of the Village Council a steering committee has been formed to get this party under way!

For the many citizens that fondly remember the Sesquicentennial in 1964, be assured the goal is to make this celebration as grand and memorable as that event.

The organizations and citizens will be invited and encourage to get in the spirit and join in the planning; to take an active role in all the preperations for this giant celebration.

The steering committee currently consists of Kim Custenborder, Deb Pohl, Alex Luthman, Todd Dammeyer, Aaron Morran, H.B. Hole, and Jim Kelch.

Watch for an announcement in the near future inviting all of the community to a kick-off event so we might come together in the Versailles tradition to celebrate those who came before us and those who will follow and most importantly to celebrate US!
