Plans are under way to host a “Charter Day” event on Sunday, April 15, 2018, as well as a joint meeting of the three Town Boards on the exact 200th anniversary of the first Town Board meetings, March 2, 2019. A day-long “Old-Fashioned Independence Day Celebra-tion” on Tuesday, July 3, will include a parade that we hope the community’s churches, civic groups and businesses will join!
In addition to the parade, local civic groups, businesses and churches are invited to hop on the “bicentennial bandwagon” with bicentennial-themed events and programs of their own. Please feel free to be creative. The planning committee hopes community organizations and businesses will use this opportunity to highlight their own histories and contributions to our town.
Hopping on the bicentennial bandwagon is simple! If you or your organization is planning a bicentennial-themed event, program or project (or if you are adding a bicentennial theme to an existing event), simply fill out the form below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail at Robert Lowell Goller, Town Historian, 300 Gleed Ave., East Aurora, NY 14052.
We will add this information to the official Bicentennial Calendar, which will include events in all three towns. The calendar and list of projects will be posted on the bicentennial webpage at www.townofaurora.com, as well as in publicity as the events draw closer.
(Please note that all the following information may be included on the calendar, unless you note otherwise). Thank you for joining the Town of Aurora’s 200th celebration!
