Bicentennial Community Workshop

Alabama Bicentennial Commission Community Workshop for local interested parties will be held from 10 AM to noon on Friday, Oct. 20 at the Lewis Cooper Jr. Library in downtown Opelika. The Alabama Bicentennial Commission urges anyone interested to visit for up-to- date information. The workshop is free and open to everyone, though registration is required to ensure materials are available for everyone attending.

The workshop, co-hosted by the Lee County Bicentennial Committee, will include information on statewide projects and resources with a special focus on the East Alabama region. Join us to learn about— and plan— what will happen in your town and county. From museum exhibitions and family reunions to parades and fireworks, there are many ways to be involved in the state’s milestone birthday.

The Alabama Bicentennial Commission works to support, create and execute programs that commemorate the past 200 years of Alabama places, people and stories. Between 2017 and 2019, the commission will engage residents and visitors in educational programs, community activities and statewide initiatives that teach, inspire and entertain.
