The purpose of the Southbridge Bicentennial Committee is to coordinate the celebration of Southbridge’s historical and cultural heritage, with an eye on the present, while looking toward the future of our community.
Through a yearlong celebration, the Southbridge Bicentennial Committee plans to bring a snapshot of achievements and developments of the town.
As we plan events, our goal will be for young and old, generational and new residents, to mingle and celebrate with pride our Town’s 200 years of history in an informational, entertaining, and affordable atmosphere.
We encourage residents, friends, community groups, and neighbors to help plan, participate, and share in our community celebration.
