The United Steelworkers Union Hall was double-booked on Sunday, Dec. 5, forcing the racing series to look for another date and a different facility.

The Ste. Genevieve Herald will have an update on the time and location of the banquet in the Dec. 1 edition. 

The Ste. Genevieve County Racing Series will have an entry in the Holiday Christmas Festival parade set for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4.
