HUNI Welcomes Indiana Bicentennial Exec Dir to April 28th Quarterly Meeting

HUNI was pleased to welcome Perry Hammock Executive Director of Indiana's Bicentennial at its April 28th Quarterly Meeting. Indiana’s Bicentennial Celebration kicked off on Statehood Day, Dec. 11, 2015, and will continue to a grand finale weekend December 10 and 11, 2016. Indiana's Bicentennial Commission aims to honor our state’s 200 years of history, and do so in a way that engages all 6.5 million Hoosiers and leaves lasting legacies for future generations. The Bicentennial Commission works with volunteer coordinators in every county to identify projects that are worthy of designation as “Official Bicentennial Legacy Projects.” To date, more than 1,000 projects have been endorsed, representing all 92 counties and hundreds of cities and towns, villages and neighborhoods.  We will talk about some of these wonderful projects, special dates and celebrations, and ways for your neighborhood to be involved in this singular moment in Indiana history.

Get involved in the action by visiting the state's Bicentennial website or viewing Indiana first lady Karen Pence's activities as the state's official Bicentennial ambassador reported on Hoosier History Live show.
