The Van Buren Girls High School basketball team won the “Show Me” state tournament last week. They defeated Kansas City, two teams from Columbia and St. Louis. Post 3009 contributed a few Bingo bucks to help with expenses. Comrade Bill Moriarty, who lives in Van Buren, arranged a Fire Truck ride south on Main Street and
dinner at the Mercantile and
got the Mayor to present the “Key to the City” to the team. Not too bad for a little town most folks drive through on their way to somewhere else.
