Know Your Nevada
Cowboy and Women’s History Take Center Stage
We are almost at the halfway point of our yearlong 150th-birthday celebration and still going strong. January and February were chock full of events celebrating our state’s history, people, and culture.
The Sesquicentennial Celebration Continues
The sesquicentennial is well underway, and what fun we’re having! As I wrote in the November/December 2013 issue, we had a tremendously successful kick-off. Our November and December events were as diverse as our state. Hopefully you, your family, and friends had the chance to participate in at least one of them.
Let the Sesquicentennial Celebration Begin!
Nevada’s yearlong birthday party is officially underway—and what a kickoff it was! The festivities started on October 24 with the Governor’s Banquet in Reno. Hundreds of people joined Governor Brian Sandoval and me to celebrate our state’s great history and heritage.
Party Like It’s 2014
The best part of Nevada’s upcoming sesquicentennial celebration is the fact that all Nevadans will have the opportunity to participate. It will be a year filled with delightful events and colorful tributes to the rich history of our state.
