City of Parsons Founder's Day Banquet Invitation

The City of Parsons will host a Founder's Day Program and Banquet on Saturday, June 27th at the Parsons Municipal Building and Parsons Centre. A Founder's Day Celebration booklet will be available as a keepsake. The booklet will contain historical information pertinent to the founding of the town. The museum will also be open to the public.

The Third Annual Founder's Day Banquet will be held at 6:30 p.m. The banquet program will honor three citizens whose lives have exhibited leadership and service to others. Inductees for the City of Parsons Wall of Achievement include the following: Edith Taylor will be honored for her career in education, Arthur Tolley will be honored for his contributions to the Town of Parsons while serving as Mayor during President Roosevelt's "New Deal" era. Robert Bibbs will be honored for his contributions to education with his tenure on the School Board. Edith Taylor and Arthur Tolley will be honored posthumously.

In addition, the banquet program will feature a short video recalling the 20's and 30's era, featuring an interview by Mr Martin Fisher of Mr. Hobart Townsend in 1992. The interview video will include historical photos of that era. The Founder's Day Banquet held a year ago was a huge success as the council and community rooms were filled to capacity. Seating for this year's banquet is expected to again be limited, and interested businesses, families, and individuals are asked to reserve seating in advance. Tables can be reserved for $150.00 and individual seating is $25.00.
