Alumni banquet organizers are thankful

The Warrensburg Alumni Association officials express thanks to the alumni banquet committee for its hard work. This includes Maureen Sprague, Ed and Kathy Binder, Bertha LaVigne, Carson Parker,Virginia Pike, Arlene Ackley, Margery Parker and Ed and Alice Damp.

The Alumni Association will meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 to critique this year's banquet and plan for 2011. The meeting is set for the Warrensburg High School library. Anyone who attended or graduated from WCS is welcome.

Thanks go to the class of 1960 for joining the celebration and providing the entertainment. Also many thanks to the members, both those attending and those who were unable to come for their generous donations and payment of dues. The association was able to give three $400 scholarships to 2010 graduating seniors who are furthering their education. It is hoped that this will be continued in 2011.

See where your tax money is going!

Very few local citizens attended the Aug. 6 WCS school board meeting. I urge taxpayers to consider attending at least one board meeting for the 2010-2011 school year. After all, 70 percent of property owners' taxes go towards operating the local school. Note the present teachers union contract will expire next June, and the contract negotiations will begin in September. If you have concerns about personnel expenditures of the school district, it is to your benefit to attend school board meetings and hear the progress of negotiations. The next school board meeting will be held Sept. 13.

Items needed for Basket Raffle

The Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce is now seeking donations of goods and services for their annual gift basket raffle held in conjunction with the World's Largest Garage Sale event in early October. Raffle Items and gift certificates are to be submitted, by local merchants, to the chamber no later than Sept. 27.
