SIKESTON - Instead of laboring in the yard during Labor Day weekend, why not go to a celebration instead?
From 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Sept. 3 and starting at 2 p.m. Sept. 4 at the 100 block Westgate Street, the West End Community Betterment Association will host the Annual Sunset Reunion and Labor Day Weekend Celebration.
Harry Howard, the president of WECBA, said current and former Sunset residents should attend the celebration "to see old friends" and "in respect and in memory of our community." Those attending are invited to bring old pictures and memorabilia of the Sunset community, he said.
Howard said the celebration is "very much family, friend and community themed." Everyone is invited to attend and there will be no charge for admission, he said.
Anyone attending the potluck is asked to bring their favorite dishes, and in portions "big enough to share," he added.
