Oregon’s 150

Oregon 150This has been going on for some time, but we’d not seen the web site before today: Oregon 150, the planning group for the 150’s anniversary (the sesquicentennial) of statehood. The group is already highly active; its board next meets on May 9 in Portland.

That anniversary is not for a couple of years yet, in 2009. But these large year-long activities take a while to plan, as the centennial planners in Idaho (1990) or Washington (1989) could tell you. And this one looks as if it has a broad range of activities in store.

It’s in early stages, as yet. (A blog, for example, is promised but not yet developed.) But the early postings are promising.
