Let’s take a moment to appreciate s’mores. This simple treat combines all the textures of a great dessert:  warm, gooey marshmallow; a graham cracker’s satisfying crunch; and the sweetness of a thick chocolate chunk.  Did you know the first s’more recipe dates to the 1920s, where it was called a “Graham Cracker Sandwich?” It wasn’t until 1927 that a Girl Scout handbook referred to the campfire delight as “Some More” – a snack meant to feed 16 hungry scouts!

Need some competition in your weekend? How do 32 Volleyball matches sound?

The Missouri State Volleyball Tournament kicks off November 8 at 9 a.m. inside the Show Me Center where student athletes will go head to head, determined to be the next champion team.  I’m not kidding, folks.  These are the best of the best.  You’ll see high reflexes in a display of explosive strength and endurances. Who will take home the glory?  Attend both Friday and Saturday to find out.

Once the volleyball excitement has passed, don’t forget to make time to honor America’s veterans November 11.

Just a friendly reminder to keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters this week, especially while driving.  Children have been known to accidentally dart in front of vehicles, so pay careful attention and stay safe.

Mid-October means one thing: It’s time to talk about Halloween.  For a few days, this charming midwestern town turns into a frightening community filled with ghosts and ghouls.  OK, it’s not that bad.  But we do have some haunted houses and maybe a ghost or two.
