Ellis Kansas Declared ‘Rocket Town’

The city council of Ellis, Kansas, passed a declaration to call the city “Rocket Town” on July 28, 2011. The declaration is in honor of the fourth anniversary of Big Creek Rocketry, a rocketry education program offered through the Ellis Public Library.

At the city council’s regular meeting on July 5, 2011, Ellis mayor Dave McDaniel read the proclamation calling for the city of about 2000 residents to be called “Rocket Town” on July 28.  On July 28, Big Creek Rocketry will host a night model rocket launch.

    The program grows larger each year. The 2011 launch netted 39 participants from Ellis and a small contingent from Hays as well as one rocketeer from Colorado.
