FALL DINNER IS PLANNED
Did you miss out on most of the celebratory events held during Platte County's 175th Anniversary celebration this year? Well, you aren't out of luck if you did . . . and if you got to some of them, you can see what went on with the rest of them!
Don't miss the Platte County Historical Society's Fall Dinner on Sunday, October 26. It begins with social time at 12:30 and will be held in the South Cafeteria of the Platte County High School. A delicious dinner with roast beef and all of the trimmings, including bite-size desserts, will be served by Anna Cooper. There will be the usual "business meeting" (it will be short) and presentation of the Betty Soper Award and lunch will be enjoyed prior to heading over to the high school Wilson Auditorium for the program.
There will be displays representing each event from the 175th Anniversary Celebration, not to mention Platte County Art on display. Then we'll head into the Wilson Auditorium for Platte County Music by the Parkville and Platte City Community Bands. It will be culminated by the presentation of a special composition, honoring our 175th Anniversary, composed by Platte County's own Michael Anderson.
To top it off, there will be a cake reception at intermission, and, if you choose, you can stay to hear the Platte City Jazz Band. Don't miss this fun event celebrating 175 years in Platte County! Look for your invitation in the mail soon for more information and reservation form.
