Trip Around the Ozarks for January 4, 2017

Posted on January 4, 2017 at 10:21 AM by Dustin Hall

Hello Friends;

January 6 & 7 National Antique Tractor Pull will be coming to the Civic Center for their winter pull. Join competitors and spectators from Missouri and surrounding states as they battle it out in the championship of “the world’s heaviest motorsport.” Info:   

January 13 & 14 we welcome back two nights of Mad Dog Demolition Derby at the Cowan Civic Center. Come see the metal crushing car-smashing heroes of the Mad Dog Derby Tour doing battle. It’s a weekend of total destruction that you, your friends and your family will race to attend. Info:

Thursday January 26th MOPS or Mothers of Pre-Schoolers will be having a Paddle Party Fundraiser from 6PM-9PM at the Mill Center. This is their quarterly fundraiser. Vendor applications are still being accepted but remember it is first come first serve. All the details for the event can be found on their Facebook Event Page

Starting off February Lebanon will host the Missouri Nationals Wrestling Tournament on the 4th and 5th at the Civic Center. Matches will begin both days at 9AM. We want to welcome all the competitors and wish them all the best of luck.

On Saturday February 11th The Lebanon Concert Association presents Southeast Alaskan Odyssey: Join the Alaska String Band for a Southeast Alaskan Odyssey. Hailing from Alaska's capital city of Juneau, the Zahasky family bring the best of Americana music to every performance. This family-friendly group presents American-roots music favorites that are showcased touching on additional genres such as swing, jazz, bluegrass, pop, Celtic and gospel.

On December 8th starting at 7PM stop by the Civic Center to see the extraordinarily talented 399th Army Band as they present "Holiday Memories". They need your help to bring back the magic at the North Pole. The Holiday Memory Bank is running low this year and it's going to take some serious holiday cheer to refill it in time for the holiday season! This is one production that you will not want to miss! The concert is free and all are welcome. Info: Facebook Event Page

Some additional events to look forward to:
I-44 Speedway Indoor Go-Karts
It’s a Gas Swap Meet

Additional Information and links to these events and other upcoming events can be found on the City’s Event Calendar. Have a great week.

FYI: The next regularly scheduled City Council meeting will be Monday, January 9th in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
