After the auctions, there will be live music on the bandstand. The evening begins with meal at 6:30. The food and auction events raise funds for E-O-D Wounded Warriors.

This years Calamity Jane Days theme is "Honoring Our Everyday Heroes".

Officials plan to recognize all emergency service personnel; firefighters, law enforcement and emergency medical workers. Games are planned for the afternoon with a special program that evening. All area emergency service personnel are encouraged to attend in Princeton. Final plans were made for the fund-raising meal after the tractor cruise on Friday September 19th. The tractor rodeo will be on Main Street that evening.

Kelly Bertrand and Donna Herdrich will be featured on Open Line on KTTN the Monday before Calamity Jane Day. Kidpower will be holding the kids pedal pull again this year.

Sponsors are sought and they can have their names put on trophies. Duane DeMoss has donated $100 toward the pedal pull. Murphy Brown is in charge of the Calamity Jane parade. 4-H clubs will hold the Baby Show. Volunteers are needed to help with the quilt show. A community church service on Sunday September 21st on the Mercer county courthouse lawn is being considered.

The situation with the Cow Palace was discussed. The Calamity Jane Players are searching for somewhere to hold this year's Melodrama. It was reported Cow Palace repairs cannot be completed in time for this year's melodrama. Although there are several bids, but they all exceed the amount insurance will cover.

Chamber President Donna Hedrich said a complete inspection needs to be made to assess damage due to water coming in under the building from Missouri Street. It is not known if it will be feasible to repair the existing structure or if the Princeton Chamber should consider building a new structure.

Because of the historic significance of the Cow Palace building input is sought from the community.
