Join us on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 1:30pm during the 16th Missouri Cherry Blossom Festival, to honor those ladies who have served as First Lady of the state of Missouri through music. This free event will host ten pianists and one organist who will honor the First Ladies’ many contributions to the history and culture of the state. The concert will be held at the Marshfield United Methodist Church in Marshfield, Missouri.
2021 is the 30th anniversary year of the Pioneer Day Program and will be held on May 14, 2021. It was originally written by the 4th grade teachers as a play to cover the statehood of Missouri. Later music and dance were added by the music teacher, square dancing by the PE teacher, and art projects by the art teacher. The day begins with students eating a traditional breakfast in their classrooms. Then they proceed to the gym to perform the program in costume. After the program the students participate in outdoor activities (ex. eating from a chuck wagon, playing games from the period, etc.) and indoor activities (ex. traditional instruments and songs) led by community members.
