Chris Stigall, morning talk show host on KCMO 710 AM, will be one of the special guests at this year’s public Christmas party sponsored by The Landmark Newspaper.
Stigall is the voice of political conservatism on Kansas City radio. His show has gained nationwide attention, as last week he appeared as a guest on the Lou Dobbs show on CNN.
The party is set for Friday, Dec. 12 from 4-8 p.m. at the Comfort Inn in Platte City. It is open to all.
The Landmark’s party has become a Platte County tradition. As in past years, many local dignitaries are again expected to be on hand to visit with all comers.
The Landmark will provide food and beverages throughout the evening. Featured menu items will be from the Smokebox BBQ Café.
In addition to local officials, The Landmark columnists and staff members will be on hand to connect with readers.
Those who attend, if they choose, may bring a donation of non-perishable items or a check to be given to the Hillcrest Transitional Housing program, an organization serving Platte County by providing temporary housing for those in need. Platte County Democrats and Republicans are having a contest to see which party can raise the most donations to Hillcrest, and the effort comes to a close with The Landmark party on Dec. 12.
Donations in advance of the Christmas party can be dropped at The Landmark office, 252 Main St. in downtown Platte City. Mark your donations with a “D” for Democrat or “R” for Republican if you’d like your items to be counted as part of the contest.
