Reunion seeks to increase unity among residents

SIKESTON -- Organizers of the upcoming Sunset Reunion are looking to increase unity among Sikeston residents and close the racial gap by enhancing the annual Labor Day weekend event in west Sikeston.

"We want to make it another event of the Sikeston community like the Redneck Barbecue and the (Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel) Rodeo."
