Ariel Walden,

On Friday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Shallowater Mayor Robert Olmsted and Councilman Kenny Arnold talked with Tom Collins and guest host Sondra Zeigler about the city’s 100-year anniversary.

This weekend, the city of Shallowater will be celebrating its 100-year anniversary. Arnold explained that the city was founded back in 1913, and was originally names “Ripley.” He added that the name was changed to Shallowater in order to attract the agriculture business.

Olmsted said there will be a number of events taking place around the city this weekend. The tractor museum will be opened to the public, along with displays of the city’s history, and live music will be performed in the park on Saturday night. There will also be plenty of games and activities for kids at the Shallowater Community Center.
