Prairie du Rocher kicked off its yearlong 300th birthday celebration with a gala event last Saturday evening, Jan. 1.
The hall at Prairie du Rocher American Legion was transformed into a beautiful setting filled with lots of gold and silver accents to mark the event.
Following appetizers by Rocher Pub and dinner by Lisa’s Market Street Grille, there was a brief special presentation.
Dawn Walker, on behalf of the Prairie du Rocher Chamber of Commerce and Community Foundation, started off by giving a welcome and thanking all in attendance. She also wanted to highlight some of the upcoming tricentennial festivities.
