Thank you to Truman Hotel for hosting us!

We are warmly welcomed to Jefferson City by Chris Wilson from the city's Visitors Bureau. The local TV station was also present.

On behalf of the city's mayor, Chris Wilson presented us with a Proclamation of peace and friendship between cities in North America. He also gave us a copy of an award proclaiming Jefferson city as America's Most Beautiful Small Town.

Jefferson City is named for the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, who was the President responsible for the Louisiana Purchase. Some of the land from that purchase eventually became the State of Missouri.

Our team offered the Certificate of Appreciation to Jefferson City.

Happy citizens!!!
