Missouri Community Betterment Awards

Canton 2003 Grand Prize Community

Governor Bob Holden honored a number of communities and leaders for their accomplishments in improving quality of life at the 2003 Missouri Community Betterment (MCB) Awards this evening in Columbia. The city of Canton in Lewis County won the grand prize award for their outstanding involvement with community betterment projects.
