Join Columbia’s Historic Preservation Commission and Mayor Brian Treece for a ghostly evening walking tour of MU and downtown Columbia on Thursday, October 28th at 7:00 p.m.
Mayor Treece will recount chilling, historic tales of the University campus that are best told after dark. The tour will form at the University of Missouri columns in front of Jesse Hall, and will feature four locations before ending at one of downtown Columbia’s most iconic and historic locations, the Missouri Theater on Ninth Street.
Members of the Historic Preservation Commission will serve as your chaperones during this nighttime tour, and no registration is required. We only suggest that you bring a jacket for the autumn chill, a listening ear for the mayor’s frightening tales, and a bit of courage for what you might learn during the tour.
To support United Way, we are going to have a bake off (really, it’s a bake sale) on Nov. 8-12. Please participate by bringing in your best baked goods or purchasing the yummy treats! We are going to have two new additions to this year’s bake off.
• Friday is for non-bakers. Maybe you pickle things or make dried fruit. Feel free to show off your talents by bringing in your goodies!
• We are also going to have a bake for later option. You can sell your famous pie, cake or other baked good (to be baked in the FUTURE). Staff will be able to buy bake sale items, each of which will be prepared at a later time agreed to by the baker (you!) and the buyer.
All the proceeds will support United Way’s fight against poverty in Boone County.
To make it more fun and more like the Great British Bake Off, each day of the bake sale will have a theme!
• Monday: Cakes and Pies
• Tuesday: Cookies and Brownies
• Wednesday: Muffins and Scones
• Thursday: Free for All
• Friday: Savory Treats or Other Non-baked Goods!
I will send out more details soon!

We have an American Red Cross Blood Donation team at the University of Missouri, and currently there is a shortage of blood. The blood drive has promotions at times too, and this month is a Zaxby promotional.
This year was our first outdoor Homecoming open house. The weather was great, and it was a big success!
