Happy Birthday, President Harry S. Truman!

Thursday, we kicked off our weekend-long birthday celebration for Harry Truman. Our tour begins at Truman’s Birthplace, which is a historical site managed by the Department of Missouri State Parks. Democrats gathered to learn more about Truman’s historical journey from Lamar, Missouri to Washington D.C. started. Chairman Russ Carnahan and Vice Chair Yvonne Reeves want to thank those who showed up!

Friday, we are heading to Independence to tour the Truman Presidential Library! Chairman Carnahan will welcome Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II, who will be our special guest! We will begin at the Truman Library at 4:00 p.m., and then head to Ophelia’s Restaurant & Inn for an MDP Fundraiser. 

 Saturday, we will round out festivities heading East to Saint Louis. You will find Democrats at the Historic Train Cars & Platform at the St. Louis Union Station. You won’t want to miss this event, because we will be joined by special guests Mayor Tishaura Jones and St. Louis County Executive Sam Page! We will meet up at the rail cars just before the event begins at 5:00 p.m.
