150 years of statehood: Events statewide will celebrate Kansas

In big and small ways, Kansans will be invited next year to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the state. Nothing will be as lavish as when our neighbors to the south — Oklahoma spent $60 million — celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2007; or when Minnesota celebrated their 150th in 2008 with a $1.6 million budget or Oregon in 2009 with their 150th with a $2.5 million.
