BRPC Annual Meeting Held Dec. 6, 2017
Boonslick Regional Planning Commission held its annual meeting Wednesday, December 6, 2017. Guest presenter for the evening was Missouri Humanities Council Executive Director Steve Belko.
Dr. Belko spoke about the different thoughts on the correct pronunciation of Missouri. As most people know, this is debated in many circles today. Dr. Belko, who has published numerous award-winning articles on various subjects of 19th century American history, informed the group that this same debate has been going on for many years. He shared humorous stories from news articles, writings, and other accounts where individuals have had strong opinions on the pronunciation since the 1800’s. People attribute these differences in thought to a variety of things: generational, rural/urban, Kansas City area/St. Louis area, and not being from Missouri – but being an “outsider”. In the end, perhaps it is best to deem both pronunciations as being correct!
BRPC Executive Director Chad Eggen gave a report on the projects which the organization has been involved with for the past year. He also shared that BRPC will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018. Several activities are being planned which will take place throughout the year, culminating with the annual meeting next December.
We would like to extend our appreciation to Warren County officials for making it possible for this year’s annual meeting to be held in the Warren County Administration Building. A special thanks to Warren County Emergency Management Director Mike Daniels for his help in setting up for the event!
