Planning Meeting - Wednesday, February 28 at 6:00PM at the Auburn Public Library

Since this evening meeting is targeted to partners across our city (athletic associations, historical groups, cultural organizations, faith-based organizations, historic property owners, and others), please come prepared to highlight two specific aspects of your affiliation's work:

  • Does your organization offer a regular series of events during the year (or a time of year) that might offer an opportunity to relate one to Auburn's 150th celebration?
  • If you do not have regular schedule events that might offer one to focus on the celebration, might your organization be open to creating a new, one time (or recurring) event?
  • Does your organization have a pending project/initiative that might be promoted/linked to the 150th celebration as a way to generate interest in investing in our community (public investment, private/business/individual investment, foundation investment, etc)?  This could be a capital campaign, improved signage, etc.
