A photocopy of the hand-written minutes of the first Lodi City
Council meeting in 1906 sat on display next to the Lodi Centennial
banner. As guests filed into the Lodi Woman's Club on Wednesday
night, they were asked to sign the banner, leaving their mark for
the next 100 years.
On Dec. 6, 1906, Lodi became incorporated as a city. One hundred
years later, citizens celebrated with champagne, cake, fruit and
cheese and the soft rock of the Part Time Band.
