The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art on the State Fair Community College Sedalia campus will dedicate the Menefee Library in a naming ceremony at 2 p.m. on August 31st in the museum lobby.

The public is invited to attend this event.

A plaque in Menefee’s honor will be unveiled at the ceremony. Katherine Menefee, SFCC President Dr. Joanna Anderson and Daum Museum Director Tom Piché will speak and refreshments will be served.
