JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — The Jasper County Courthouse has a new addition to highlight a big anniversary for the state.
The Missouri Secretary Of State presented the county commission with a banner detailing the 200th anniversary of the founding of the state.
The banners are going out to every county in the state in advance of the big date next summer. This banner will sit in the Jasper County Courthouse as a reminder of the upcoming event.
So we’ll get this right out in the hall and keep everyone’s mind on it and it’ll be good.John Bartosh, Jasper County Commissioner
