Ostrich farms once were a common site in the city during the era when women adorned their hats with ostrich feathers.
Officials already have been contacted by numerous service clubs and other groups interested in centennial activities, said Ronald E. Hagan, city community services director. Next month, Hagan’s department will begin accepting applications for officially sanctioned events.
