Friday, November 8, the Alger Sullivan Historical Society hosted a fried fish supper honoring the folks who worked so hard to get Old 100 back together.

The engine, a Baldwin 2-6-2, was built in 1919 and purchased by the Alger-Sullivan Lumber Company in 1923.  It was a fixture in the Town of Century from the mid-1930s until 1954 when it was retired.

There were several members and non-members alike who gave of their time, resources and skills to accomplish what has turned into an apt memorial to the memory of the glory days of the mill, the town and its inhabitants.

Members and workers were invited to the occasion which started at about 4 p.m. and continued until the celebration was over. A visual program was presented by Neal Collier detailing the Society's efforts over several years getting the engine back home.
