More local bicentennial events approved

Three more Bartholomew County events and projects have been added to the official state list of Indiana Bicentennial legacy projects.

Lynn Lucas, who is heading up the local bicentennial efforts, said the state committee has approved adding Mill Race Center, the BCSC educational program “Populating Hoosier-land” and the Columbus Area Visitors Center’s presentation asking whether the word “Hoosier” originated in Hope.

That brings the total of local legacy projects to 24, Lucas said. There are still local events being considered and there is still time to submit an event for the legacy designation. If you are interested you can e-mail Lucas at [email protected].
