On Sunday, June 25th, from 1:30-4:30 the North-East branch will be hosting another Mystery Play, The Class of '54. This is an adult program for eight participants. Come see who the murderer is-will it be the nationally famous rock 'n' roll star, "Rock" N Roley, or business manager, Joseph "Joe" K. Awledge, or one of the former teen queens, Penelope Lofer, or Dierdre C. Deucer? No acting experience is required; just a sense of humor and patience-we are not Thespians! If you have questions, please call Debbie Gamm at the North-East branch at 816-701-3485.

So much fun, it's almost criminal!!

Missouri Valley Sundays
Infamous characters and sensational incidents abounded in the Ozarks immediately after the Civil War and well into the 20th century. The mining district around Joplin, Missouri, saw perhaps more murderous violence than any comparably populated area in the country. Gunplay erupted with alarming regularity, and spectators flocked to the drama of executions and lynchings.
From Wild Bill Hickok’s gunfight on the Springfield square in 1865 to Bonnie and Clyde’s shootout with Joplin police in 1933, award-winning author Larry Wood examines the Ozarks’ preponderance of violent, murderous events from the 1860s until well into the 20th century.
