Perryopolis committee seeks participants, sponsors for bicentennial in 2014
Perryopolis Bicentennial Committee Chairwoman Kathleen Kifer is preparing sponsorship letters to be issued to organizations and businesses for support for the 2014 event.
“We met a couple of weeks ago and started working on the sponsorship letter,” Kifer said.
Committee members are discussing how recognition of sponsorship levels would be separated and determined.
“This is something that needs tweaked,” Kifer said of the letter. “There are some things that may have to be changed.”
When the final letter is approved, copies will be sent out.
“I'd like to have this ready for January,” Kifer said.
Businesses and organizations that are interested in sponsorship will be asked to respond by June.
Kifer is seeking volunteers to form a committee that will work on writing and requesting grants. She also is asking for volunteers to form a committee that will research proposed advertisement banners.
“I'd like some people to contact people about the banners and check on quality and cost,” she said.
The committee has discussed the possibility of putting together a video that would highlight the history of the area through photographs.
The bicentennial committee plans a large parade to mark the event. Letters will seek float participants and sponsors.
The next meeting of the committee will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 16.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
