Members of the Misplay, Schmelzle and Schmidt families who would like matching shirts for Jour de Fete need to contact Deb Says Sew now to order them before the deadline on Sunday, July 21.
Also, to ensure delivery at Jour de Fete, those wanting family books are urged to order immediately by calling Jean Pettus at 573-883-3925.
The books go to the printer in early August and the number of orders plus a few extra will be printed. However, the only way to assure getting one at Jour de Fete is by ordering now. The price are expected to be about $30 for the Schmelzle book, $25 for the Schmidt book, and about $20 for the Misplay book, barring a steep rise in printing costs.
The final meeting with the families will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 3, at the new Project Pioneers headquarters in the basement of the French Colonial Life Center [former First Bank building] at the corner of Third and Market streets. Entry is from the parking lot at the back door. Those present can do a final review of the books at this meeting and final plans for the event will be made.
