With our every changing health issues in Bates County and the State of Missouri, it became clear that a new vote needed to be taken by the Papinville Historical and Cemetery Association. Should we or should we not have the Sept. 26, 2020 Picnic?

All officers, board members, band and workers were each contacted and with the votes counted, the decision was to have NO September 2020 Picnic. That being said, it is going to give us added time to plan a fabulous Picnic for Sept. 25, 2021.

2021 will be the 200th birthday of the Statehood of our great State of Missouri. It will be the 200th year of the organization of Harmony Mission. This puts us in the position of planning and making 2021 a very special year. We will make many decisions throughout the coming months and as tings and events are finalized, we will keep you informed every few months. If anyone has ideas of something, they would like to see included in the big celebration, please call 417/395-4288 or 417/395-2594.

It is NO Picnic for this year but, a big YES for next year.

Beverly Sullins, presedent.
