Bovina Bicentennial Celebration, Update 8

We are now less than a year away from the Bovina Bicentennial Celebration, scheduled for August 1-2, 2020. 

The Bovina Country Pie and Cake Auction brought in almost $3000 for the celebration fund. The money has been matched with a grant from the county tourism bureau to produce a Bovina Bicentennial promotional poster. There are two sizes: 18 x 24 and 12 x 18. These will be on sale at Bovina Farm Day on September 1. Bovina Farm Day is on Crescent Valley Road on the Weber Farm, running from 10 to 5. The larger poster will be $60, the smaller $15. After that date, the poster will become available by mail. I will provide further information on how to do mail order in a couple of weeks. 
 On September 14 at 10 am there will be a Bicentennial planning meeting at the community hall. All are welcome to share their ideas and offer their services. There will be a parade to kick off the day and in the afternoon a vintage baseball game. Other ideas still are under development, but may include an evening music program. 

More details in a month. I hope to have a lot of the program for the celebration weekend worked out by the end of the year.
