In 1969, the northern community of Soddy and the southern community of Daisy merged to form the city of Soddy-Daisy.  This year marks the 50th anniversary of Soddy-Daisy and the city is hosting a celebration on Saturday, Sept. 28, for friends, family, and those who love the historic town. 

The 50th Anniversary Celebration will be held at Veterans Park beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 2 p.m. 

A ceremony honoring past mayors and commissioners will kick off the commemoration.  Festivities include entertainment by Stringers Ridge Band, Midge Stewart and Toni McMillan Rhodes, and a combined band from Allen, Daisy, and Soddy Elementary Schools. 

Children can enjoy playing in various bounce houses and everyone attending will be treated to free hot dogs, drinks, cotton candy, cupcakes, souvenirs, and more.  Special Commemorative 50th Anniversary hats and T-shirts will also be available to purchase.

“Soddy-Daisy’s 50th Anniversary Celebration is a unique time for us to honor our community’s history, its residents, and those who paved the way for the city’s sense of community and inclusiveness,” said Janice Cagle, Soddy-Daisy city manager.  “We invite the citizens, their families and friends, to join us for this special day of festivities.”
