Laurel's 150th Anniversary is a celebration of the past, but most importantly the future, of the more than 23,000 people who live here today.  From a Gala to Fireworks,to a 5K Walk/Run,  to a Multi -Cultural Celebration September 26 it will be a very special year in our town. 

Although the City of Laurel has budgeted  some money for the 150th anniversary celebration, the 150th Committee must raise significant funds to ensure the activities are successful.  We need your help.
