Event Integration ideas


Does my organization HAVE to participate?

While there is no requirement to participate, the more organizations that participate, the better. It will be the collective effort of all organizations and businesses that will assure the success of our 175th Anniversary.

What will it cost to participate?

There is no cost to be part of the year-long 175th Anniversary Celebration and to use the logo in your marketing of your 175th Anniversary events and activities. However, if you want to create a brand new event, your organization will need to absorb the costs involved.

Can we create our own souvenirs?

We request that any 175th Anniversary merchandise come from the official Merchandise Sub Committee. There will be “souvenir” exhibits available to display at your event/business if you would like to have a merchandise option.

can I volunteer, get involved or be on a committee?
