As part of the celebration, the Princeton Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring "Remembering Our Fallen," a photo exhibit that is described as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Missourians.

As the exhibit arrives on Wednesday September 18th at Princeton, organizers plan to have persons holding flags line the square. The exhibit will be available for viewing from Thursday, September 19th through Sunday, September 21st on the main floor of the Mercer County Courthouse. Sponsors are sought to help fund this exhibit. The cost of sponsorship is $25 dollars.

Volunteers are needed to sit with the exhibit in two hour intervals while the courthouse is open. Anyone interested in helping with this exhibit is to contact Donna Herdrich of Princeton.

Military and veterans pictures will be exhibited in windows of
"The Famous" at Princeton. Anyone interested in showing a picture is to take it to the Famous with name, branch of service and date of service.

Saturday evening of Calamity Jane Days Celebration, September 21st, a program will be held honoring all current military and veterans. Bill Heck and Judy Bagley will coordinate the program. It will be held at 7 pm on the steps of the Mercer County Courthouse. Take lawn chairs to their outdoor event. The program will end with a candle-lighting ceremony to honor our military. The cost of each candle is $5 dollars. Those interested in purchasing a candle in honor of a family member or friend, may contact Donna Herdrich at 748-4445 or Rhonda Watkins at 748-4438 at Princeton.

This year's Calamity Jane Days t-shirt design, honoring all veterans and military personnel, will be available for $15 dollars. They may be purchased at "The Famous" in Princeton.
