SEPTEMBER 7-10 – Cape Girardeau, MO. Once again the annual Heart of the Ozarks Hillbilly Tour will be heading east to the beautiful boot heel area of Missouri. When we last visited in 2008 we spent four enjoyable days exploring the Historic Old Town River District, visiting some of the numerous wineries, antique shops, and historic landmarks and experiencing some beautiful scenery along the way. This year’s routes will include some of the same along with some new and exciting stops. We will begin the tour events with an opening social on Wednesday night and conclude the event with a closing banquet on Saturday evening. As always, our hospitality room will be available throughout the tour providing snacks, refreshments and a relaxed, welcoming environment to visit with old and new friends. Due to truck and trailer parking limitations, we will be limiting the number of cars to 75, so get your reservations in early. For registration check out the on-line packet at: or contact: Gene Gemmill, (417)881-6702 or Email. See you at “The Cape”!
