Hoosier Uplands 50th Anniversary Celebration Event!
Hoosier Uplands hosted a 50th anniversary celebration event on August 1, 2015. The event was held at the Mitchell Opera House and was open to all staff members as well as the community. The event was centered on celebrating the ‘60s, since Hoosier Uplands was incorporated in 1966. Attendees were encouraged to come dressed in their best ‘60s gear to participate in the costume contest. A ‘60s tribute band called Twisted Gold played on stage inside the opera house. The band was excellent and great at engaging the crowd. Attendees received colorful hats, beads, and tambourines from the band to join in! The mission of Hoosier Uplands, as well as services offered, was presented at the beginning of the celebration and through an information table at the event.
Outside the building, the celebration continued with music from a local radio station, light refreshments, and face painting and balloons for the kids. The event was well attended by the community with 300-400 total people in attendance throughout the three hour event.
