POSTPONED – Celebrating 75 Years of Truman’s Legacy
***In response to new government guidelines regulating events, as well as concern for the health of our entire Truman community, the Truman Library Institute has decided to postpone the Wild About Harry dinner that was scheduled for Thursday, April 23. We are currently working with our event leadership, venue, General Mattis, and A.J. Baime to identify a new date for the event.
We sincerely appreciate your continued support as we all try to navigate through this difficult time.***
