FOREST CITY -- Folks in one part of Susquehanna County held a ceremony to mark a community's 150th anniversary Monday night.

People of Forest City buried a time capsule and planted a tree at the historical center along Main Street.

One couple was very honest about what Monday's celebration meant to the residents of Forest City.

"Well, we hope it means something they won't forget," said Peggy Newak, of Forest City.

"What it means is, 60 years from now, somebody's going to drive by and say, ' Who planted those trees?' and no one will know," said Harry Newak.

Programs and celebrations marking the sesquicentennial are scheduled to run all weekend at the community in Susquehanna County.
