Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the new Marysville city administrator, Josh Haverkamp while at the event.

A temporary exhibit, “All Set For The West,” from the Union Pacific Railroad Museum in Council Bluffs, Iowa, spotlighting architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood will be on display throughout April.
