Durham 150 Celebration

Despite the rain, Durham Rotarians showed up to celebrate Durham’s 150thAnniversary on April 13, 2019 at the American Tobacco Campus.  The celebration included speeches by the mayor, poetry reading, music and performances by the local Bouncing Bulldogs.  Attendees were invited to participate in various activities that focused on Durham’s rich history. The celebration focused upon four areas:  History & Education, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Social and Robust Democracy, and Arts & Leisure.  Rotary is an official sponsor of the Social Equity and Robust Democracy focus Area.

Durham 150 Celebrations will continue in the upcoming months. Please consider participating in the planned events.
