    Whereas, The town of Holland, Indiana, is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding beginning on September 19, 2008;

    Whereas, The town, originally founded by Henry Kunz, is believed to have been named Holland because the neighboring settlements referred to the early German settlers as Dutchmen;
