“America250” is planning a multi-year celebration that will culminate on July 4, 2026, the 250th anniversary of the United States. The nonprofit partner of the US Semiquincentennial Commission, America250 is reaching out to communities across the country for ideas that will allow every American to take pride in the country’s diverse heritage.

As KCAW’s Robert Woolsey reports, the group recently presented in Sitka, and found a community that was ahead of the curve.
