Aberdeen to proclaim February 20th as Kurt Cobain Day

 The City of Aberdeen will proclaim February 20th as “Kurt Cobain Day” according to Mayor Bill Simpson.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the proclamation states, “Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”

The proclamation gives special recognition to the efforts of the Aberdeen Museum, Tori Kovach, Denny Jackson, Randi Hubbard, and other volunteers who have worked to recognize Kurt locally.

Simpson said that the proclamation will be read on February 12th, and the day may spread into a Kurt Cobain Week as plans develop.

February 20th would not be a singular event, but recognized yearly within the city.
