End Date: 12/10/2015
Entry Description
Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence has signed a proclamation declaring tomorrow Statehood Day in the state of Indiana.  

“This Statehood Day, we will reflect on the remarkable progress Hoosiers have charted over our 199 years of history,” said Governor Pence. “In commemorating this special birthday, we usher in a historic, year-long bicentennial celebration of the enduring Hoosier spirit and the future that lies before us.”

To mark the 199th anniversary of Indiana becoming the nineteenth state in the Union, the Governor and First Lady Karen Pence will welcome Hoosier fourth graders to stations in the Statehouse Rotunda on Friday, December 11 as part of the annual Statehood Day events.

Students who visit the Governor’s booth will have the opportunity to depict what they would try to accomplish if they were governor. They will also be able to learn some interesting facts about Indiana through an interactive display that showcases what the state has to offer. 

Fourth graders who visit the First Lady’s booth will be greeted by Pence family pets Marlon Bundo, a rabbit, and Saphira, a snake. Both family pets will remain in their respective cage and aquarium throughout the duration of the event. 

A copy of the Governor’s proclamation can be found attached.
