Territorial Days Celebration History In 1960 Margaret Smith, the Post Master of the local Post Office, organized a celebration for the Amboy Post Office's 75th Anniversary in 1961. (The Post Office was here before Washington became a State.) That first celebration was held in Lucky Waldo’s field (across from the Amboy School); this property now belongs to the school dist. There were Princesses, a Sawing competition, and an organized dance held at the Grange.
Many people in the local community were involved and enjoyed the celebration. As a result, a standing committee was formed and they decided to repeated the celebration as an Annual event. Coordinating with other local community events, everyone came to a consensus on when to hold these local events so that they did not conflict.
That Annual Celebration is now known as the “Territorial Days Celebration." The Committee is a nonprofit organization now known as the “Amboy Territorial Days Association," with a duty to celebrate the founding of Amboy and its history, as well as to maintain the community park.
