    To me at least this is an important event, and I'm not sure this is the proper place to post it, but is anyone else going to the Grand Opening on the 8th of May.

    National Poultry Museum grand opening May 8
    The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame proudly announces the "Grand Opening" of the National Poultry Museum. The event will be held May 8 at the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, 630 N. 126th St., Bonner Springs, KS 66012.

    The grand opening culminates a fifteen year effort, spear-headed by Loyl Stromberg of Pine River, Minn. The goal of the effort has been to create a museum which celebrates the achievements of the poultry industry and illustrates the impact the industry has had on the typical American.

    The exhibits are designed to go beyond the display of artifacts to the exploration of the major milestones or accomplishments of the industry. Ingenuity, invention, policy, hard work and perseverance have all played a part in the "evolution of an industry." The question is--"how will future generations build on the past and create an even stronger and more dynamic industry tomorrow?"

    Sounds interesting--If I'm ever anywhere nearby, I'd be interested in visiting, but I live a thousand plus miles away [​IMG]

    There's also a very nice Boy Scout camp in Bonner Springs: Theodore Naish Scout Reservation

    There's also a very cool Marble Making Company there as well: Moon Marble Co
