Coming Soon
There's a new wine business in our downtown called the Wine & Shine Tasting Room at 109 E Broadway!

Their Facebook Page says, "Bring a group and stop in and sip on some Wine or Moonshine, enjoy some cheese from Hemme Bros, summer sausage from Paradise, Wind & Willow snack and much much more in our little gift shop."
Word on the Street
The Cornerstone Elementary clothing closet is running short on leggings and sweatpants for our boys and girls! Sizes 6, 7, & 8 are needed. No jeans, please. Donations can be dropped off at Cornerstone or you can set up a porch pick-up with a PTO member, just send them a message!
Downtown Parade Caps Off Christmas Kickoff Events
Saturday was packed full of Christmas Kickoff events throughout Excelsior Springs. From the Elf Factory, where families crafted gifts, to vendors selling their wares at the Mistletoe Market, or cake decorating classes at Muffin Top Bakery, everyone was getting into the holiday spirit. Congrats to the Christmas Committee for their hard work!

There were only a few items outside the routine “housekeeping duties” which stood out at Monday evening’s meeting of the City Council.
