There will be a Bicentennial organizational meeting at the Warrensburg Town Hall on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 4:30 p.m. Any person, business, organization, non-profit group, etc. is invited to attend. At this time the committee is not asking for commitments, just ideas.
After attending the meeting, hopefully you will be able to discuss this with your friends, groups, organizations, etc. and appoint someone to be on the committee. We need to get the ball rolling. As you know, we are all busy people and time seems to have a way of slipping by, so by starting now we can plan for this event without too much stress.
