Sunday, September 9, 2018
The Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Department has made the decision to cancel the Pickers Market they have been planning for several months. The Pickers Market would have been held the 2nd Sunday of each month June thru September in downtown Kirksville. Vendors at the Pickers Market would have been displaying and selling pre-1980 antiques
.
The Pickers Market was modeled after a very successful event in an adjoining state with the hope it would bring additional visitors and shoppers to Kirksville. The Chamber and Tourism staff regrets the need to cancel the event, but at this time there is not enough interest from antique dealers and vendors to move the event forward.

Dearly Departed


by David Bottrell & Jessie Jones

This deliciously hilarious comedy deals with a group of small-town southerners, trying to get through a family funeral without causing even more grief. When the Patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead in the first scene, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving widow who wants to put “mean and surly” on the tombstone. Despite the comedic efforts of this family to pull themselves together for the funeral, their other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion: oldest son, Ray-Bud, drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount, Junior, the younger son, is juggling financial ruin, a pack of unruly kids and a wife who suspects him of infidelity in the family car, and their unmarried sister, Delightful, continues to seek consolation by eating junk food. Amidst the chaos, the Turpin family turns to an eccentric community of misfits for comfort, and they just manage to pull everyone together through their hours of need.
