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 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.
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.
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.
Summer is upon us, and once again it’s time to pack up the station wagon (am I showing my age?) or SUV and head out with the family to visit new cities, relax at a lake, or immerse ourselves in culture by visiting museums or touring historic sites—some of the best being Nevada’s ghost towns.
Starting with this year’s Nevada Day (observed October 25), Nevadans will be celebrating a major milestone as we begin the yearlong celebration of our sesquicentennial, our 150th anniversary of statehood. If you haven’t heard the “s-word” before, by year’s end the multisyllabic word will roll right off your tongue.
Spring has arrived in Nevada—bringing with it all of the wonderful outdoor activities that Nevadans and visitors alike associate with life in the Silver State.
Are you wondering what to do for a winter getaway? If you love cowboys, poetry, or anything that captures the spirit of the great American West, I suggest you mark your calendars and make plans to visit Elko from January 28 to February 2.
Although winter means different things to different people depending on where you live in a state as diverse as ours, one thing it means to all is that the holidays are just around the corner.
Like the Nevada Quarter Contest, I saw many familiar and well-loved subjects in this year’s photo contest—Nevada’s wild mustangs, desert bighorn sheep, Hoover Dam, and the Silver State’s rich mining heritage, to name a few.
Summer in Nevada is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. There are many exciting places across the state to visit, and the Lake Tahoe area has long been one of my favorites.
On March 1, I had the pleasure of standing with Governor Brian Sandoval as we kicked off the Discover Your Nevada campaign, challenging Nevadans to explore their own state and discover their favorite destinations. Through my travels around the state, I have compiled a list of my own.
I enjoy the incredible opportunity to serve as chairman of the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition, a group comprised of leaders from Nevada and California passionately dedicated to bringing the next Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games held in North America to our region. The RTWGC is currently engaged in the process to host the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.
