Lewisburg, Ohio will be celebrating 200 years of existence in 2018 – which is something we all are fortunate enough to experience. Decades of history, growth and development have been changing the community we live within, as well as shaping our perception of the future. It’s not every day that you get to celebrate your 200th birthday, but in September 2018, the Village of Lewisburg will reach this milestone and plans are already underway to commemorate the occasion.
Even though September 2018 seems far away, we are starting to create a full schedule of
events to mark this milestone occasion; therefore requiring a great deal of
advance planning. We are seeking to
establish subcommittees to work on various aspects of several events. Organizers are working to include the Harrison
Township community in this event as well. We are looking for creative suggestions to
help benefit this extremely important project, so please, invite a friend to
take a part in this meeting and celebration.
Lewisburg's 2018 Bicentennial Celebration aims to honor our Village’s
200-years of history, and the businesses and organizations would represent what
Lewisburg is all about.
We would like to invite you to attend one of our 2018 Bicentennial Informational Meetings, which fall on the third Monday of every other month. The meetings will be located at the Tri-County North Lewisburg Community Center, 261 E. Clay Street, at 6:30 p.m. The meetings will include discussions on the various activities and events that will be planned for the duration of the celebration, and we would like to have businesses and organizations, as well as any individual from the community join in to make this celebration successful. This would be a voluntary group of people who seek to focus on Lewisburg’s history, as well as the new developments that have taken place since the Centseptuaquintennial Celebration in 1993. We as a group are striving to build our community, and keep making Lewisburg the best it can be. Your participation will help preserve the milestones and memories made for generations to come.
