GREEN BAY, Wis. (Feb. 26, 2019) – The Diocese of Green Bay is excited to be a community partner helping Brown County celebrate its 200th anniversary. The Diocese will host a community night at the Neville Public Museum on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, from 5-8 p.m.
“Having just completed our 150th Jubilee year, we know the excitement around Brown County’s 200th Anniversary celebration,” said Justine Lodl, communications director. “The Diocese of Green Bay is proud to be a part of the Neville Public Museum’s community night for the month of March. We look forward to sharing how our Catholic history weaves into that of Brown County and invite individuals and families from throughout the area to come down for an evening of festivities and fun.”
Admission is free and open to the public. There will be a children’s scavenger hunt around the museum (with a prize for all who complete it), a screening of the Diocesan 150th Anniversary Film from 5:30-6:30 p.m., a young adult sushi rolling event at 6 p.m., a Meet & Greet with Bishop Ricken from 7:30-8 p.m., gift bags for the first 200 attendees, and more.
The Neville Public Museum’s “Our Brown County” exhibit highlights 50 people, 50 places, 50 artifacts, and 50 photographs from throughout the county’s history. Bring your family, friends, parishioners, and ministry groups to see how the Catholic faith is interwoven into these 200 years and in other items and artifacts around the museum. It is a great way to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Brown County and the 150th anniversary of the Diocese of Green Bay.
