The city of Joplin is getting ready to celebrate some big birthdays – and they’re looking for help to get ready.
In the next five years, Route 66 will turn 100 years old, the city of Joplin will hit 150, the state of Missouri will celebrate 200 years, and the U.S. will reach 250 years.
Now, the city is looking for volunteers for its Centennial Celebrations Commission.
Lynn Onstot is the city of Joplin Public Information Officer. “If you have an interest in history, if you like the arts and you know your industry or you know a lot about Joplin – if you know just, you have a lot of energy you want to bring.”
The commission will include three citizen members who will serve three year terms. You can submit an application through the city website by clicking here.
