To commemorate 200 years of Statehood, Holt County’s Missouri State Bicentennial Committee proposes to collect 200 of “something.” Each year citizens of Holt County collect toys, clothing, and useful items to give to needy children of Holt County to help with their Christmas celebration. The committee proposes this year to collect 200 pairs of socks. These socks will be forwarded to the toy committee, to put into the goody bags for the children. The goody bags will also include other clothing items, food items, toys, candy, and a gift card to a local merchant. Bins will be placed in strategic areas such as local merchants and grocery stores for collection.
