We now have a DVD of the Reinbeck Centennial celebration from 1976. The Centennial Committee had given the library reels of film shortly after the celebration, which were recently rediscovered, and converted to a DVD using memorial money from the Mary Jans family. The DVD is about an hour and twenty minutes long and includes the kiddie and main parades, children's activities, water fight, beard contest, threshing, home tours, helicopter rides, antique displays, and more! The DVD is available for a week long check out period.
