The Town of Dumfries is honored to announce its participation as an official stop on the National League of Cities (NLC) Centennial Roadshow: 100 Years, 100 Cities. This initiative is part of NLC’s year-long celebration, marking a century of commitment to advancing local government and advocating for the interests of cities, towns, and villages nationwide.

The roadshow, led by NLC, will visit 100 cities across the nation, each with its own unique story of diversity,
resilience, and transformation. Starting in February at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, the birthplace of NLC, the roadshow began traversing the country, stopping in cities of all sizes to showcase the distinctive narratives of municipalities like the Town of Dumfries, each with its own significant contributions to the local government landscape.

“As the Town of Dumfries takes part in the NLC Centennial Roadshow, we’re not just participants but ambassadors of our community’s vision and vitality. This is more than a journey—it’s a testament to our dedication to progress and unity. Our involvement in this momentous event is filled with limitless enthusiasm and profound importance, symbolizing our unwavering commitment to shaping a brighter future for all,” said Town Manager Tangela Innis.

During the roadshow stop in the Town of Dumfries, there will be an opportunity to tour the new construction site of the Rose Gaming Resort, a testament to Dumfries’ growth and development. Also on the agenda is the Town’s outdoor fitness court, a vibrant space that promotes wellness and community engagement, reflecting a town-wide commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle.

“It is truly an honor for NLC to visit remarkable municipalities, like the Town of Dumfries that have made significant contributions to the advancement of local government over the past 100 years,” said Clarence Anthony, CEO and Executive Director of the National League of Cities. “Each of these cities has played a pivotal role in moving our local communities forward and has a unique story that showcases transformative change. As we celebrate and chart a course for the next 100 years, I am more excited than ever for the future of cities, towns, and villages and look forward to continuing important work together.”

As the journey progresses, the roadshow will continue making stops in cities across the country, including Tampa, Florida, where NLC will host its annual City Summit conference and culminating event this November.
