Check Out Events To Look Forward To In September
Guys, there's a lot coming up next month. Now that school is back in session, the weather will start cooling down before long, and that means stuff to do!
But of course... how do you keep all that in check? How do you remember it all? I've got most of it right here, listed for you with links (if you're not sure how it works, you click on the part of each story that's a different color. Then, the link should appear that will tell you more about the event). Of course, if I missed something, feel free to comment and tell us all about it. Hey, if you want, we can do this on the regular. Just let me know what you're doin, 'yo.
I tried to go in order of when they're happening, at least by date. There's stuff here in Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Green Ridge, etc. Nothing KC or STL. Just stuff happening here in our general area. Here we go.
