Welcoming us to the start of the MFA, Inc. annual meeting is Don Mills, Chairman of the Board. He’s pictured here with Shelby Ringdahl, current Miss Missouri. Shelby will be signing the National Anthem for us.
I spoke to both of them prior to the start of today’s activities. Shelby says she’s seen a lot of local companies come and go already in her life and to be able to be on stage with MFA celebrating 100 yrs. is “wonderful.”
