Butler Centennial Remembered

On August 10th of this year Missouri celebrated her 198th anniversary of statehood. On that particular day a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony took place in Columbia and it should be celebrated by every Missourian. The State Historical Society of Missouri officially opened a new facility that now houses all the archives, artifacts, and art owned by the Society. The Center for Missouri Studies is a state of the art building designed specifically for the preservation of Missouri’s historical treasures. Located in the downtown area near the University, the building is spectacular and, best of all, it has its own parking lot!

It’s a privilege to attend a grand opening and ribbon cutting. Those opportunities don’t come along every day so when the invitation to attend the August 10th event was received my response was an enthusiastic yes. The day was quite lovely and the festivities were grand and dignified. Happily, I connected with several people on the SHSMO staff that I know along with other acquaintances and friends. The event was truly joyful and I shall remember it always.
