Indiana's 2016 Bicentennial celebration aims to honor our state’s 200 years of history, but do so in a modern way that engages all 6.5 million Hoosiers and leaves a lasting legacy for future generations.
Bicentennial Brown Bags
Indiana turns 200 years old on Dec. 11, 2016.
How will your local history organization celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial?
Even though your town our county may not have existed when Indiana became a state, the Bicentennial is still an opportunity to celebrate our Hoosier identity, reflect on how and why our state has changed, and leverage the excitement about Indiana history to raise the profile of your local history organization.
Join the LHS Team and other local history organizations for a brown bag lunch and discussion about what your organization or region might do for the Bicentennial. Host sites will provide drinks and dessert. You’ll bring your own lunch.
Like In Your Neighborhood meetings, this information and free conversation aims to connect local history organizations with each other and with LHS. We want to thinking creatively about this unique opportunity to capture funders’ and the public’s attention and share the importance of Indiana history .
