The Joplin Celebration Commission is working on developing the programming to mark Joplin’s Sesquicentennial in 2023. One of the projects is a record of little-known tidbits and milestones about the businesses and people who make Joplin, and the region, our unique corner of the world.
Facts such as:
- This is an example organization fact; Battery XYZ was invented in Joplin by Bird-Catcher in November 1964.
- This is an example organization fact; KOMTA Roofing has been the world’s leader in “ABC” since 1984.
- Grand Falls is Missouri’s highest continuous flowing waterfall.
- Joplin citizen Bob Rider holds the Salt Flats record for a 200cc unicycle at 218 mph.
Please send your corporate or individual tidbits and milestones to Patrick Tuttle, firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your contact information.
Joplin 150th celebration will begin September 2022 through August 2023.
