Celebrating 200 Years
The Clay County Commission has established a new citizen-led commission to commemorate Missouri’s bicentennial celebration, as well as Clay County’s original organization on January 2nd, 1822.
The new Commission will work in conjunction with interested local parties to brainstorm community-driven ways to honor Clay County and Missouri's rich history and heritage.
Clay County Commissioners visited the Cerner campus last Thursday to tour and support the Operation Safe Vaccination Site, a massive community coalition that was created to safely and efficiently deliver COVID-19 vaccinations to Clay County citizens. Read more.
