History of Waldo

May 22 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

History of Waldo Event
Join the Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association and the Waldo Area Business Association Advisory Council at the Kansas City Public Library – Waldo Branch (Rooms A & B) for a special evening looking back at the rich history of the Waldo district.

This unique event features local author and historian LaDene Morton who will present portions of her book “The Waldo Story: The Home of the Friendly Merchants,” which will also be for sale at this event. Ms. Morton will also moderate a panel discussion with a variety of longtime Waldo business owners and operators who will share their personal memories and the evolution of Waldo from their perspective.

Join us before the presentation to socialize and enjoy the refreshments graciously provided by the Lewellen family and Lew’s Grill and Bar.

The event is free to attend, but space is limited, therefore RSVP is required. Please e-mail your name and how many will be attending by May 19, 2019, to nicole@waldokc.org.
