We're now a little over four months away from our big celebration. Our planning has been somewhat derailed by the current COVID-19 crisis, but there are some things to report:
- I am working with Carrie Choquette to put on the Town of Bovina website a page for the Bicentennial. Hope to have it ready by the end of the month. I want this to be the main go-to point for information about the celebration.
- On the parade front, I'm happy to report that we have a pipe band lined up from the Albany area (thanks to Jason Stanton for the suggestion). We still are working on the parade entry rules.
- We have received full funding for our 2020 Tourism Promotion and Development Grant proposal from the Delaware County Economic Development. It will be used to help pay for the tent, table and chairs.
- I had hoped to schedule meetings of the parade and event subcommittees by the end of March, but the current situation likely will put that on hold for a bit. We can do some things by e-mail. If you are interested in serving on either committee, please let me know.
So in the meantime, stay home so that by August, Bovina can party in style!
