Alaska Statehood 60th Anniversary Reception

  • 366 Dirksen Senate Office Building (map)

Hard to believe 2019 is the year we celebrate 60 fulfilling years of statehood. This deserves a celebration! Alaska State Society and our sponsors will be hosting a Hill reception in conjunction with our annual Cherry Blossom Festival reception.

Every year, one lucky Alaskan is chosen to represent our state in Washington, DC’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Working with our Congressional Delegation, the Alaska State Society nominates and supports Alaska's princess. This year Senator Dan Sullivan will have the pleasure of nominating the Alaskan princess to participate in the week-long cultural exchange program. Alaska’s senior U.S. Senator, Lisa Murkowski, was a Cherry Blossom Princess herself in 1980.
