Bicentennial Commemorative History Book

History Book

Doug Sikes, with Acclaim Press, has been selected as the publisher.  Doug is a Kentucky boy, although he claims Sikeston, Missouri as home.

Local Kentucky author Bobbie Smith Bryant was asked to write the publication and she is working with nearly 300 writers in the community who are sharing stories about our 200-year heritage and culture.

Members of the Calloway County Genealogical and Historical Society are working with Bobbie to contribute to and promote the book. There is still time for you to come forward with photographic submissions and memorial tributes for the book. Please get in touch with Bobbie at bobbiebryant40@gmail.com.

The deadline for Sponsored Memorial or Family Stories is January 15, 2022.
