Question of the day

Monday, Jun 16, 2014

* Old news from mid-May, but we didn’t really take full advantage of it here

Governor Pat Quinn today officially started the planning for Illinois’ 200th birthday in 2018, a year-long celebration that will engage residents and communities throughout the state and leave a lasting legacy for future generations. The Governor signed an Executive Order to create the 2018 Illinois Bicentennial Commission, a grass-roots organization that will plan a celebration that is meaningful to every resident and spur history-based tourism.

“Ever since becoming a state on December 3, 1818, Illinois has been a crossroads, a microcosm and a breadbasket for our nation,” Governor Quinn said. “We have cultivated such leaders as Presidents Lincoln, Grant, Reagan and Obama. The Bicentennial is an opportunity to remind everyone of our rich heritage and pave the way to a bright future.”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate Illinois’ rich heritage,” Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA) Board Chair Sunny Fischer said. “The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency will do everything it can to help the Bicentennial Commission get people talking, learning, traveling and exploring 200 years of Illinois history.”
