The Pony Express Museum is preparing its 20th year of sponsoring Tuesday Night Talks.

The program has become a popular and educational event in the community in January and February each year.

Joseph K. Houts, Jr., TNT Chairman stated, “After 20 years, the public response to the lecture series has been phenomenal, which is why it has been so successful and why we will continue to have the program.”

Cindy Daffron, Executive Director stated, “Last year’s attendance topped out near 1,030 or roughly 150 individuals per presentation.” These talks give those in attendance a chance to hear authors, historians, and lecturers on a wide range of topics.  Admission is free and light refreshments are served to all guests.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and speakers begin at 7 p.m. The museum and social time is warm and inviting. What better place to be on a cold Tuesday night? You’re sure to see a familiar face and make new friends!  Contact Cindy Daffron, Executive Director, at 816-279-5059 or pxdirector@ponyexpress.net.
