At Tuesday’s meeting, the committee made plans to hire a local artist to create the design based on a rough draft drawn by a local eighth grader. The place mats and posters will be used to raise money for the local celebration.
Committee chairman Dave Pearman says they’ve also made some adjustments to the torch relay route and are working with representatives from the state for final approval. Nominations for torch bearers will be accepted until the end of December. Information is available on the Indiana Bicentennial: Starke County Facebook page or at www.indiana2016.org/torchrelay.
The Bicentennial Committee will have its next meeting September 22.
