Time Flies

January 16, 1993
It's been 20 years already. Two decades ago today, we had 100,000 people gather in Ruston to watch the Asarco Tacoma smelter stack fall. We made national news. Some of of us wept for the end of an era, far more cheered the change. The landscape dramatically changed that day and has been changing ever since.

Join us today as we gather to reminiscence, raffle off a few bricks from the old landmark and celebrate 20 years of change in Ruston - 3-7pm at the VFW Hall, 4741 N. Baltimore.
