First off, we’re Oregonians who love Oregon, and we’re using the sesquicentennial to launch a celebration of this magical place.
From this starting point, we developed a vision and a set of values to help guide us as we commemorate our home state.
We want to remember Oregon’s past, celebrate the present, and inspire people to dream of the future. This is our mission, and we invite all of Oregon—young and old, urban and rural, lifetime residents and recent arrivals—to join us in accomplishing it.
We want to remind people too of all the things social, cultural, and natural splendors that Oregon has to offer its residents, and to entice those unfamiliar with this bounty to get out there and start familiarizing themselves.
We want to establish a robust, sustainable future by knitting the entire state together as one community with a shared interest in seeing Oregon excel for the next 50 years and beyond.
And we want to have some fun, too.
