The West Mo/Ks Council’s annual “Christmas in August” took place this year on August 8, 2019. The West Mo/Ks Council decided a few years back with never knowing what the roads and weather could be in December, to hold their annual get together in August when the weather is good. This year around 150 registered for the annual Christmas in August coffee and cake reunion. The council makes a donation to the Lee’s Summit Christian Church for making the hall available for their activity. Included are few a pictures of the Charm Shop that makes no cost therapeutic devices for children with physical disabilities through its woodworking shop. Photos were sent by Thelma Bibbee.
