January 3rd marked the official date for MIBOR to begin celebrating its 100th birthday! What a historic event! How many organizations do you know who have celebrated their 100th anniversary? We have something to shout about!!! Seems like only yesterday that we were in the planning stages for the historic event and now it's really happening.
Last week we kicked off our centennial celebration with the release of our commemorative book and DVD at our video release party at WFYI.
Our next big event is the Centennial Celebration coming on January 21st at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Lots of special things are in store for attendees, so don't miss this "once in a lifetime" opportunity.
No project this large gets accomplished without a hard working team behind it. Such is the case with the Centennial Committee. We began working in 2008 under the direction of Claire Belby and our historian/author Todd Gould and the results have been overwhelming! A core group consisting of six hard working, innovative thinkers produced tremendous results culminating with our commemorative book, interactive website and special events planned throughout 2012. Major kudos to co-chairs Brad Osborne, John Creamer, Amy Englert, Kurt Simmons, Sue Applegate and Pam Aguirre for a job well done. Also, special thanks to the individual committee members who contributed so much of their time and talent to the centennial planning.
Combine all these efforts with the Building a Living Legacy project in conjunction with Super Bowl XLVI and you've got a winning combination for a SUPER 2012! Enjoy the excitement! You're a part of history!
Centennial Committee Chairman
