Support a Centura Senior, Buy a Sign!

The Centura Seniors have, no doubt, missed a big part of the celebration of being a Senior. No Senior skip day, instead no days. No awards night, prom, athletic events. They are even missing out on the traditional graduation and the community is going to miss out on celebrating with them.

To show support for our Centura Seniors, double sided yard signs have been created to display in your yards, on main street, in your business windows. Signs are $10 each. Contact Kate Bohling via email kbohling@centuraps.org to purchase a sign.

Let our Centura Class of 2020 know that even though we can’t be together we are here, proud of their accomplishments, and wish them the best in their next adventures. Let’s show our Centura pride and cover the town with Centura Class of 2020 yard signs!!!!

Cairo CornStalk Festival Cancelled

It has been decided by the festival committee with the recommendation by the Village of Cairo board to cancel the festival that was planned for June. We feel for the safety and well being of the community it is best to just cancel for this year. If you have any questions you can contact Christy Osburn the chair of the festival. Thank you and be ready for a big celebration next year!!
