10th anniversary of Cone & Kimball clock tower in Red Bluff
RED BLUFF, Calif. —
The Rotary Club of Red Bluff hosted the 10th anniversary of the completion of the Cone & Kimball plaza and its clock tower on Tuesday.
The celebration ceremony was held at Main and Walnut streets around noon, which included speeches on the history of the clock tower. The Cone-Kimball Building was destroyed by a fire in 1984. The Red Bluff Rotary Foundation purchased the property in 1997 and made a partnership with the Red Bluff Business Association and the city to rebuild a replica of the clock tower.
The public was in attendance for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and the cutting of the celebratory cake, hosted by Red Bluff-Tehama County Chamber of Commerce.
Red Bluff Rotary president Hillary Lindauer said she was proud of the community coming together for this anniversary.
"I think it's a wonderful time to get together and I think that our community is really special and how we are able to work together and overcome differences for the common good and like I said it's a real testament," said Lindauer.
The rotary club said it would not have been possible without the help of the community's donations and volunteer work.
