A recap of the City's weekly radio show highlighting upcoming area events:

Good Morning KJEL listeners, Bruce Conklin here to take you on your weekly Trip Around the Ozarks.

Only hours left until the New Year! Here are some events to plan for:

On January 10th Championship bull riding returns to the Civic Center with the CBR Horizon Series – Show Me Shootout led by bull riding icon Tuff Hedeman and some of the best riders and bulls in the world. They are prepping the x-hall now, see City's FB Page for pics!

On January 15th the Lebanon Concert Association presents Todd Oliver and Friends Concert. Todd Oliver & Friends is filled with his canine companions Irving and Lucy, a "real" cast of characters like Pops and Miss Lilly, and his outstanding Smiling Eyes Band. There's lots of audience participation, fun music and good clean comedy.

Returning for a 2 night event starting Friday January 16th is Mad Dog Demolition Derby. Come see the metal crushing car-smashing Hero’s of the Mad Dog Derby Tour doing battle. You’ll see Mini car derby & Full-size Derby mayhem. It’s total destruction that you, your friends and family will race to attend!

And finally;

Starting January 30th Experience two high flying nights of motorized adrenaline pumping action full of qualifying and main events at the AX series. Amazing riders compete on a jump infested arena floor, soaring over 60 ft in the air. From the 50cc kids, to the Pro’s on their 450cc fire breathing MX bikes straight off the AMA Supercross circuit , these guy’s will leave you gasping in amazement! Grab your friends and family because this is a show you will not want to miss.

Here are a few things to look forward to in the upcoming months:

COPE Chili Cook-Off
R&K Gun & Knife Show
Cornet Chop Suey Concert
The Issacs in Concert

On behalf of the City I hope that everyone has a very safe and happy new year!
