Celebrate 200 Years!

When did the planning begin?

Posted on August 30, 2011 at 3:45 PM

We had our first open meeting about Findlay's Bicentennial on Tuesday, February 9, 2010. Many community members came out to share their memories and their desire to volunteer. After this public meeting, Christie and I began meeting with individuals and organizations in the community to toss around ideas for the Bicentennial. Before we knew it, we had a full year of ideas!

One of the suggestions was a big New Year's Eve gala. Since we knew that the Findlay Inn & Conference Center already had an established event, we asked to partner with them. They immediately agreed. Findlay Ohio's Bicentennial celebration begins on New Year's Eve in 2012. The Findlay Inn & Conference Center will be hosting a New Year's Eve party that will kickoff the Bicentennial year.

This is just one example of the collaboration and excitement we have seen so far with the planning of our celebrations. 

We have the event on our calendar and the details are being finalized. But, in the meantime, keep December 31, 2011 open for a great night of music, food and dance!

Our committee will be meeting with a local pastor who wants to do a documentary on our local churches. One of the churches plans to have beautiful float in the parade depicting the first church in Findlay. We have preliminary plans with a couple of other churches for some great events. If your church would like to be involved, contact us at trooney@redtornadopro.com
