Summer time in the tri-states and the livin' is, well not easy..it is busy. Many things are happening all around the tri-states.

I just got a call from our friend Patrick Hollensteiner. He is one of many people who help get things ready for the annual K of C Bar B Q, which by the way, will be August 9, 10, 11 and 12. Quincy's biggest party.There is so much to do in our area during summertime like Gems baseball, many Parish picnics, 4th of July on the riverfront, story telling by Gladys Coggswell at the Mark Twain boyhood home in Hannibal, National Tom Sawyer Days in Hannibal just to name a few. And many of these activities are free. So go explore the tri-states. As we speak, the price of gas has gone down so take advantage of  it with a little trip around the tri-states.
