For every month leading up to Nevada’s 150th birthday (Oct. 31), we’ll post one Nevada-or birthday-themed question along with responses from every Imagine team member. This month is a Nevada question. Please join us as we think about what makes Nevada home for us. And if you’d like, comment on our blog to tell us yours!
Melissa Biernacinski serves as Director of Media Relations for Imagine Communications.
