Committee met at the American Leagion at 5:30 pm. Members submitted proposals for events and discussed dates of 2018 events. A motion to have the celebration beginning June 30, 2018
and ending July 4, 2018 was passed. It was also discussed to have other branded events throughout the year. These events would be planned and executed by the varying social groups and
committees within Louisiana. It was decided that the Bicentenial Committee would assist in those events by providing branding and promotional support. Upcoming fundraising events were also
discussed. The Holiday Home Tour was planned for Dec. 10, 2016. Sub-committee consisting of Lori Lewis, Michelle Niedner and Cindy Blaylock was formed to plan this event. Next meeting is
Wednesday, November 2 at 5:30 at the Amarican Leagion.

Our first meeting! Many were in attendance including local government officials and our co-chairs,
Cindy Blaylock & Michelle Niedner. Here is a synopsis of the discussion:
- Much discussion around selecting a date. We finally settled on June 30th through July 7th, 2018.
- The theme was also decided. "The Past Looking Forward" was suggested and received overwhelming support.
As we started throwing out ideas for the events, it became clear that we want to acknowledge our past and
be optimistic for our future! "The Past Looking Forward" became the perfect expression for the planned events of 2018
- Ideas for the 2018 event were submitted. In the coming months we will be discussing the feasibility of all the ideas
put forth - a carnival, holiday home tour, formal ball, boat races, fireworks, walking time line, and many more!
- The next meeting date will be January 21st, 2016. See you there!
