Armstrong Commemoration

Months of planning resulted in reconnecting with Neil Armstrong’s family with a three day celebration of his 50th Anniversary consisting of 10 of Neil’s family members arriving in Langholm and touring sites around the town. The celebration brought the whole community together from Nursery to Senior Citizens, schools, local groups, businesses and the Pipe and Town Bands.

Led by his sons, Rick and Mark, the 10-strong American party touched down to warm Muckle Toon welcome but due to the untimely death of her majesty The Queen, the big celebratory plans changed. Nevertheless we ensured the Armstrong party crammed as much activity as possible into their three day trip where they sampled the best of Langholm hospitality.
