Best Week Ever
157 Electrical workers and tree service providers are having the best week ever after successfully returning power to over 8,000 homes in the storm last Friday. Citizens have reached out all week to offer thanks and give shout outs to those who were at times working 30 hour shifts to get power restored.
Coming Soon
Breakout/Escape Rooms have been really popular in the Kansas City area for years now. However, Excelsior may be getting one of our own! It was announced this week in the Excelsior Citizen Facebook Group that there will soon be an Inside Out Escape Room of our own!
Word on the Street
The new Cornerstone Elementary will be open for the public in an Open House on August 16th at 4pm, so mark your calendars!
