Missouri Celebrates 200th Anniversary

On Aug. 10, Missouri will commemorate 200 years since it became the 24th state in the Union. Communities across the state are encouraged to commemorate Missouri’s bicentennial by hosting an ice cream social since the ice cream cone is the official state dessert. Kirksville Tourism will host an ice cream social from 3:30-6 p.m. Aug. 10 outside the Sue Ross Arts Center to help celebrate.
