Washington became a state on November 11, 1889. For the "Quasquicentennial" or Washington 125, we are calling on Washingtonians to look back to freshen Centennial '89 projects, plan programs or exhibits that look back on our state's history or predict where we are headed, or contribute to their own communities as a birthday present to the state. Look for special events in February 2014 commemorating the Congressional action to enable Statehood as well as programs and events leading up to the main celebratory event November 11, 2014 in Olympia for the state's 125th Birthday.
