HARRISBURG – Rep. Valerie Gaydos (R-Allegheny) today announced she was recently appointed by former Speaker Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) to be the House Republican Caucus designee for the Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial (America250PA). In addition, she was chosen to be a member of the Fundraising and Historical Preservation committees.
“I am excited to be a part of the America250PA Commission to help celebrate 250 years of all of the many great opportunities, inventions and innovations that America has offered to its citizens and to the world,” Gaydos said. “It is a time to celebrate the best of our past, the best of our present, and to help craft a vision for an even better future. Happy Birthday, America!”
America250PA was established by the Legislature and governor in 2018 to plan, encourage, develop and coordinate the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States, Pennsylvania’s integral role in that event, and the impact of its people on the nation’s past, present, and future. Commission members are comprised of current and past leaders of Pennsylvania, private citizens and industry leaders celebrating the rich history and diversity of the state.
“The big event is just over three years away, but from federal and state agencies to local museums, planning is continuing at a rapid place with Pennsylvania taking a lead role,” Gaydos said. “I am eager to be a part of the most inclusive anniversary observance in our nation’s history.”
