MAYSVILLE, Mo. — The Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri will host guest speaker Steven Mitchell, a business owner from the small town of Calico Rock, AR, in both Maysville and Brookfield.

Through working with the local Museum Board, Mitchell helped to revitalize Calico Rock’s main street business district. The collaboration raised enough money to purchase seven buildings within the main street district and place businesses in them. The businesses are currently debt-free and generate additional monthly sales tax revenue for the town.

Both presentations will take place on October 9. The presentation in Maysville will take place at the June Conley Building from 7:30-9:00 a.m. Later in the afternoon, Mitchell will present in Brookfield at the First Presbyterian Church, from noon until 1:30 p.m.
