The Calamity Jane Players are concerned that it will not be repaired in time for Melodrama practice and Calamity Jane Days.

Donna Hedrich says the roof and several walls must be replaced. Nine FFA students and six adults recently cleaned up much of the storm damage, taking down wet insulation, pulling up wet carpet and tearing out damaged walls. Water continues to run under the building because there is no ditch to  the south--on Missouri Street. It was suggested that the Princeton chamber consult Jack Clapham of Princeton for suggestions to solve the water problem.

The Independence Day Celebration was reviewed. The general consensus was that this year’s activities in conjunction with the Princeton alumni meeting and Stacy Fundraiser meal worked well. Glen Kirby is to be asked to be the pyrotechnician for July 4th fireworks next year at Princeton.

Two Saturday Night Live evenings of music on the bandstand are being planned. The first will be held Saturday July 26th and the second in August. Another group is considering an ice cream social prior to the entertainment in July. An auction to benefitWounded Warriors is being planned for August.

In a report on Calamity Jane Days, Kelly Bertrand has several vendors signed up. Murphy Brown will handle the parade. It's been suggested local churches be contacted to see if there is interest in a Community Service on Sunday Morning of CJ Days.  Judy Bagley offered to work with our local emergency service personnel to put together a program for the Saturday night of CJ Days similar to the military program held last year.

The 2014 Tractor Cruise T-shirts are now available and plans are being finalized forthe Tractor Cruise on the Friday of Calamity Jane Days. The chamber is planning a meal that evening. A tractor rodeo and antique tractor rodeo are being considered at Princeton.
