*FROM THE HENRY COUNTY MUSEUM*
(Suzanne Bush, Director of the Henry County Museum)

The Henry County Historical Society Semi-annual meeting in July has been canceled.

Also, the Ladies Suffragette Luncheon at the museum complex (originally to be held in August) has also been canceled.

The Henry County Museum is OPEN, however and will be open July 3rd but closed on July 4th because of the holiday.

*Photo: a sign made for the museum. Under the sign, and seldom noticed by visitors (located across the street from the Henry County Museum Complex), is a section of the first concrete bridge in the county. Hard to read, but inscribed on the stone surface is: Newman’s Bridge 1917. The bridge portion on display was cut from the larger section which was originally found in Tebo Township.

Storms are likely tonight for parts of MO, with the best chances in central/eastern MO.

If you live near the MO/KS border (St. Joe & KC), storms are possible, but there is still some uncertainty if storms will develop that far west.
