Ad-Hoc Bicentennial Committee

Mission for the Chaplin Ad-Hoc Bicentennial Committee

Chaplin’s Bicentennial is a time to celebrate the 200 years our community has existed, to marvel, and reflect on the events of the past that have shaped our town and made it what it is.  The Bicentennial celebration together with the work we put into it can act as a springboard to what the town becomes in the future.

As we plan ways to celebrate this momentous birthday, let us be sure to be inclusive of every Chaplin resident not only to provide opportunities for all to participate, but also to contribute their energy and skills for this once-in-a-lifetime event. 

The make-up of the Bicentennial Committee should reflect the mission by being as inclusive as possible in its participants.  To this end, every relevant town organization should be invited to provide ideas, participate in and plan activities to make this a bicentennial to be long remembered.  The Committee, acting as the coordinator for all events, will work with others in the planning and organization of these activities which will take place during 2020-21 while the actual celebration will take place during the Bicentennial year of 2022.
