CULLMAN – It’s not every day you get to celebrate someone’s 193rd birthday, but on Thursday, June 30, you can do just that, with the founder of our town, Colonel Johann Cullmann. The party will start at noon at Festhalle. Everyone is invited to stop by and enjoy some birthday cake, ice cream and lemonade and visit with the Colonel. While you are there, register to win a FREE dinner with the Colonel at the All Steak! The drawn names are allowed one guest…and if a child’s name is drawn, then a parent or guardian must attend.
“I look forward to seeing everyone at my birthday party,” said the Colonel. “I used to have my birthday parties at my home, but since Cullman has grown so much, nowadays we celebrate it at Festhalle when the farmer’s market is in full swing. Come out and have some refreshments with me. Afterwards I will draw two names to join me for a birthday dinner at the All Steak.”
Although our beloved Colonel’s birthday is actually July 2, his birthday is being celebrated on the previous Thursday to work around the people using the Festhalle for the farmer’s market.
The event is sponsored by the Cullman County Museum. For more information, call 256-739-1258.
