President's  Message

Dear Friends,
With the beginning of a new year come new plans, new faces, new excitement, and hopefully new energies! It seems to me to have been a hard winter thus far. Thank goodness we’ve had no ice storms yet, only cold and snow. Like many of you perhaps, I’ve suffered through the flu and secondary infections, but I feel well now and am happily contemplating what this spring will bring to us, individually and as an organization. We are blessed to have so many seasoned interpreters among us, and it’s gratifying to see a number of younger people take an active interest and develop a love for the Village!
It won’t be long now until Missouri Town 1855 is open to the public 6 days a week and in no time at all, we will start to prepare for our first event of the new season, Children’s Day/Sheepshearing on May 4th. Angela Lunceford is the “liaison” from the Friends for that event, so if you are interested in being part of this first seasonal event, please let us know. Our other events are as follows: Independence Day Celebration on July 4th, Paranormal Investigations on September 14, our Fall Festival of Arts, Crafts, and Music on October 5th and 6th, and our Christmas Celebration on December 7th. Last year marked the arrival of our “themed” weekends. They were well received and offered us an opportunity to delve into our history with perhaps a little more focus. This year we are again offering a Day of Dance with our Missouri Town 1855 Contra Dancers on April 6th, a Hearth Cooking Day on May 25th, a Lost Arts Day on June 8th, and a Soap and Laundry Day on November 9th. In addition, on August 24th we are hosting an Election Day, a new theme for us this year. As I write, schedules are being firmed up and bookmarks and brochures being developed.
