Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay Local Torchbearer Names Announced
INDIANAPOLIS (June 29, 2016) –Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb, Indiana Office of Tourism Development (IOTD) Executive Director Mark Newman, Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance President and CEO Kim Smith and Bicentennial Torch Relay State Director Noelle Szydlyk today unveiled the names of more than 2,000 Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay torchbearers, as well as the official torchbearer uniforms. The unveiling took place during a press conference at the Indiana Statehouse.

“The 2,000 plus Hoosiers selected as torchbearers embody the Indiana traditions of service, civic pride, community involvement and volunteerism,” said Lt. Governor Holcomb. “As we reflect on Indiana’s first two hundred years, it is only fitting that we celebrate Hoosiers who serve as inspirations in their communities.”

A list of the torchbearer names and the counties they represent can be found here.  Graphics of the torchbearer uniforms are also available by request.

Torchbearers were nominated by the public and selected by local committees on a county-by-county basis. More than 4,000 torchbearer nominations were received. Those selected are Hoosiers who demonstrate exceptional public service, excellence in their profession, acts of heroism or volunteer service to their neighborhood, community, region or state.

Developed by IOTD, the Relay is patterned after the Olympic Torch Relay and is designed to connect Hoosiers everywhere during the bicentennial year. The unifying nature of the torch relay underscores the achievement, influence and aspirations of Indiana and its people while symbolically passing the torch to future generations of Hoosiers. The torch relay route was charted by a committee of representatives from multiple state agencies and the private sector. The route showcases locations of natural beauty, local interest and historic significance. The Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay will start Friday, September 9, 2016 in Corydon, Indiana’s first state capital, and culminate with a celebration on Saturday, October 15, 2016 on the grounds of the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis. The torch relay will touch each of Indiana’s 92 counties during the 3,200-mile journey across the state.

"Enthusiasm is building as the start of the torch relay approaches," remarked IOTD's Mark Newman. "Communities large and small are pulling out all the stops to honor their torchbearers and celebrate Indiana’s 200th birthday.  Collectively, the over 2,000 torchbearers have had far reaching impact and all of Indiana should be proud.”

In addition to the selected torchbearers, the relay will employ other modes of conveyance that are symbolic of the history and heritage of Indiana, including watercraft, farm equipment, racecars, horse and wagon, antique automobile and others.

In order to conduct an event the size of the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay, a strong team and critical partnerships are necessary.  Newest among those partners is Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance who is the official sponsor of the uniforms that will outfit the torchbearers, community volunteers and torch relay staff.  The specially designed torch bearer uniform is comprised of a light weight  lined wind resistant jacket made of ripstop polyester fabric, a 100% micro polyester moisture wicking t-shirt and a specially designed cap.

“We are excited and proud to be an official partner of the Bicentennial Torch Relay. It’s not often that you have the opportunity to participate in a historic event that will touch every county across the state, and we are honored to join with our fellow Hoosiers in celebrating 200 years of statehood,” said Kim O. Smith, President and CEO of Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance Company.

The Indiana Arts Commission is sponsoring the 2016 Arts in the Parks program throughout the state. Arts in the Parks is a partnership between the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, this program also celebrates the Centennial of Indiana State Parks and the 50th Anniversary of the IAC through enabling the creation of arts activities for the public to enjoy at parks and forests across the state. Local artist Ryan Heacock was awarded a grant through the program, and hopes to encourage members of the public with no artistic experience to participate. This funding allows him to host a series of six open-air canvas painting expeditions. Participants will visit the Hardy Lake Park on scheduled dates, and have the opportunity to create their own work of art. All supplies will be provided for, including admission to the park. Ryan states that “our goal is to provide, for anyone interested, a chance to experience plain air painting for themselves.”

Any ages or skill levels are welcome to come along, but supplies will only be provided to the first ten aspiring artists registered for each date. Accessibility and restroom facilities are limited to those available at the park. The painting sessions will begin at 9 a.m. and are scheduled for the following dates: July 16, August 27, September 17, October 8 and one session to be scheduled as weather allows. To register, please contact Ryan Heacock via phone at 1-812-595-0534 to stop by Heacock's Eastside Gallery at 183 E. McClain Avenue.
