Happy birthday wishes from Washington and beyond

“Happy birthday, Fermilab!”

Those well-wishes were recently offered from Secretary of Energy Rick Perry (beginning at 1:30), Congressman Bill Foster and Congressman Randy Hultgren on the occasion of Fermilab’s 50th anniversary.

Congress also recognized Fermilab’s 50th anniversary through two resolutions, in the House and the Senate.

Anniversary recognition came from our partner laboratory CERN as well, specifically from the CERN Staff Association.

Fermilab received many personal birthday cards from around the world. View them on our Facebook gallery.

And of course, Fermilab staff and users were enthusiastic about registering their birthday wishes by signing a giant birthday card on June 15, the anniversary date of day lab employees first came to work.

Thanks to our Washington, D.C., officials, to our friends and followers from around the world, and to our very own Fermilab staff and users for the birthday congratulations. May we enjoy another 50 years of science discovery.
