Come for the 154th anniversary with an Old Fashioned Soldiers' Family Reunion and Picnic. At 10:00 am there will be a commemoration service with the placing of wreaths in the cemetery. Then descendants of soldiers and original community citizens will be introduced. At 11:00 am the Blue Grass Missourians will play followed by a picnic at Noon. The Lone Jack Historical Society is providing hot dogs, pulled pork and brisket and a variety of beverages. Local churches will be providing side dishes, and you are invited to bring a dish to share. From 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm the Lone Jack PTA will host "old time games" and maybe a pie eating contest.
If you have family photos or mementos you would like to share, please feel free to bring them for a Show and Tell table. Call (816) 690-2072 for more information.
