DANVILLE, IN (February 13, 2023) – The community continues to submit ideas for projects and events with a Bicentennial theme in honor of the county’s 200th birthday.
The Bicentennial Committee hopes civic groups, municipalities, businesses and all members of the community will be inspired to create Bicentennial projects that leave a legacy for future generations as well as events both current and new that include some kind of Bicentennial or history element.
Submit your idea to the Bicentennial Committee for official endorsement and upon approval, applicants will have the use of all Bicentennial logos, a listing on the Bicentennial website and additional support by reaching the community through a press release sent to local media.
Three new endorsements join an additional six county-wide events officially approved by the committee, with hopefully, many more to come.
New endorsed events include:
- Woodcarving Project. Karl Nantz of Brownsburg plans to create a wood carving featuring the bicentennial logo on oak board.
- Cascade Middle School Documentary, free showing at 5:15 p.m., at the Royal Theater in Danville, March 13, 2024. The eighth-grade honors Social Studies class creates a documentary highlighting unique artifacts from the Hendricks County Historical Museum.
- National Alpaca Farm Day at Montrose Farms, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 28, 2024. Visit with the alpacas, take in a demonstration and celebrate the farm’s and county’s bicentennial.
The community can begin planning their event or project now. The committee is looking for ideas that are open and accessible to the public, create a legacy for the future, engage and inspire youth, are educational and tied to the celebration of the Bicentennial.
The Bicentennial Steering Committee exists to support and encourage the Hendricks County community in their efforts to celebrate our community’s past, present and future. For more information, visit Hendricks200.com or email Hendricks200th@gmail.com.
