Happy anniversary Bullhead City

Elsie Needles, president of the Colorado River Historical Society, stands next to a display set up in honor of today’s 35th anniversary of Bullhead City’s incorporation. She is pointing at a copy of a story about Suzy Dominguez, the winner of a contest to design a logo for the new city. Dominguez was a Mohave High School student at the time. Needles collects newspapers and has brought out some from her own collection so people can see accounts of various events in Bullhead City at the time they occurred. The museum has an extensive collection of old local newspapers and recently relocated to 1239 Highway 95, within Community Park. There also are photographs within the display of the city’s mayors as well as a group photo of the first city management team meeting and some other artifacts available to view that pertain to the city’s incorporation anniversary. The museum is free to everyone today and is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be cake served. Bullhead City Hall, 2355 Trane Road, also will commemorate the day starting at 8:30 a.m. when free cake and custard will be served until it runs out. The city was incorporated on Aug. 28, 1984, after gaining approval of voters. Inside today’s edition of the Mohave Valley Daily News is a special section devoted to the city’s history.
