Ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Alabama Bicentennial traveling exhibit

Members of the Winfield Mainstreet Program, the Winfield Chamber of Commerce, and the Winfield City Council held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Alabama Bicentennial traveling exhibit on Sept. 6 in the Pastime Civic Center. The exhibit features a series of kiosks representing successive time periods in Alabama’s history. Visitors to the exhibit can use touchscreen computer tablets located at each kiosk to learn more about different times in Alabama’s history. Alabama became a state in 1819 and celebratory events are being held statewide to commemorate the anniversary. Part of the celebrations are the travelling exhibit. Tammy Brashier, Main Street director and bicentennial chair person, said she is excited to have the exhibit in Winfield. “I am absolutely thrilled to be able to offer this to the community and all of Marion County,” she said. “It’s an impressive exhibit and it’s free. Everyone needs to take advantage of it while it’s here.” The exhibit is available for viewing during civic center hours which are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., M-F. The exhibit will be open on Mule Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The exhibit closes on Mule Day.
