Bovina Bicentennial Celebration, Update 3

A couple of things to note:

  • There was a meeting of the ad-hoc Bovina Bicentennial committee on March 9 at 11 am at the Bovina Community Hall. We've started exploring options for the celebration weekend. Mary Pelletier and I will be working on a program for March 2020 - a 'recreation' of the first town meeting, with our town's youth participating.
  • I am happy to report that we received full funding for the Tourism Promotion and Development Grant application I submitted last month to the Delaware County Economic Development agency. The funds will be used to create a promotional/fund-raising poster for the celebration.  
I would like to create a Bicentennial fundraising committee to explore other funding options. If you are interested in participating, let me know. 

Some dates to remember:

  • July 20, 2019 - Pie Auction at the Community Hall to raise funds for the 2020 celebration. Chuck McIntosh, Auctioneer.
  • March 7, 2020 - a program observing the 200th anniversary of the Town of Bovina's first meeting. 
  • August 1 and 2, 2020 - Bovina Bicentennial Weekend
