Indiana turns 200 next year! One of the signature events of Indiana’s Bicentennial will be a Torch Relay through all 92 counties, beginning in September 2016. All counties are being asked to nominate torchbearers to carry the torch for their communities.
The torch will pass through Howard County on October 5, 2016 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. with a closing ceremony as the torch is extinguished for the day before continuing its journey through Indiana.
The nomination form is available at http://bit.ly/HoCoTorch2016 if you wish to nominate a torchbearer in Howard County. All completed forms can be emailed to Katie Guyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherry Matlock at email@example.com. The deadline to submit nomination forms is December 31, 2015. For more information, call the Greater Kokomo Visitors Bureau at (765) 457-6802.
