RUTHVEN will celebrate its Quasquicentennial July 10-12, 2009.
To raise funds for this 125 year celebration, the Quasquicentennial Committee held an auction of the original painting of Ruthven’s Main Street by artist J.D. Speltz. Committee members Jane Miner (left) and Kay Suhr are pictured.
Prints of the Ruthven painting, titled “Looking Back,” are available until mid-September.
The auction was part of a “Fun”draiser held Sunday by members of the Ruthven Fire Department and QQC Celebration. The day included a 140-mile Fun Ride and an Iowa Luau at Centennial Park. Entertainment was provided by Tikki Kamakamaka. --Jane Whitmore photo
