Celebration of Our Seventy-Fifth Jubilee

I think this is the last image sent to me from Jeff Droz out of the of 75th anniversary paper. This picture is an add by Mayor Marvin Hurst and the Board of Aldermen from page 8 of the paper promoting the 75th Jubilee Milestone.

Heartily Welcome You to Rich Hill to Join in the Celebration of Our Seventy-fifth Jubilee Milestone
The City of Rich Hill, Missouri
