Busy Weekend

Coffee with Cleaver tomorrow

After a snow storm last month that fell short of the hype, we are back in Grandview tomorrow for our rescheduled monthly Coffee with Cleaver. I always enjoy coming to Grandview and this is our fourth Coffee in town.

I hope to see you at Harry’s Mug, 12222 Blue Ridge Ext. in Grandview from 8-10 a.m. tomorrow morning. As always, looking forward to it.

Art contest tomorrow

Tomorrow afternoon please come help celebrate the talent of some of the District’s best young artists as we open the gallery at the beautiful Kansas City Public Library Central Branch in downtown Kansas City.

This year we have over one hundred entries in the Congressional Art Contest: A Voyage of Artistic Discovery. The judges have already selected those who will be honored tomorrow, and I am excited to announce the finalist and winner at tomorrow’s opening.

The winner will receive a plane ride for their family to Washington where they will be on-hand for the unveiling of their work of art in the U.S. Capitol. Every Member of Congress walks past the artwork representing each Congressional District every day, and I am always proud to point our winner out to visitors and colleagues.

The gallery viewing begins at 1:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 18 at the Kansas City Public Library Central Branch, 14 West 10th Street in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Hope to see you there!
