Today is Bovina's 199th Birthday (February 25), meaning that we are one year away from Bovina's Bicentennial. There's not much new to report since last month's update, but a couple of things to note:
- There will be a meeting of the ad-hoc Bovina Bicentennial committee on March 9 at 11 am at the Bovina Community Hall. All are welcome to attend. We want to get a couple of sub-committees started - a fund-raising one and a celebration weekend one.
- I have submitted a grant application to the Tourism Promotion and Development Grant program from the Delaware County Economic Development agency. I'm applying for funds to create a promotional/fund-raising poster for the celebration.
- July 20, 2019 - Pie Auction at the Community Hall to raise funds for the 2020 celebration. Chuck McIntosh, Auctioneer.
- August 1 and 2, 2020 - Bovina Bicentennial Weekend
