Q&A with County Coordinator Diane Wulliman

What do you consider the key accomplishment(s) of your county’s bicentennial celebration?

  • Getting the community involved in the Torch Relay and getting that event organized.  The community involvement was slow in coming but it came together.

What Legacy Project do you most like to tell people about, and why?

  • I am not aware of any legacy projects in our area.  I think there is a dairy trail the is partially in Kosciusko County.  Unfortunately we were unable to find a qualifying project or get anyone on board to help with this.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your county's bicentennial celebration.

  • The torch relay was a highlight.  We also put together a county wide music program involving 600 or so adults and high school students that was very successful.

  • Some information has been given to our county historical society, some is in a box in my basement right now.  We are working on having some things on display in the courthouse.
