Tom Rafiner: "R.L.Y. Peyton, An American Journey 1824-1863"
Tom Rafiner, a well-known speaker and prolific author and native of Jackson County currently living in Columbia, MO, will speak on his latest book, a biography of R.L.Y. Peyton, frontier lawyer who practiced in Harrisonville, instigator of Missouri's "secession" and member of the Confederate Senate.
The meeting will follow COVID protocols in place at the time, and there will be no dinner, bar service, or social hour. Masks will be required while in the building. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. and seating will be lecture or theater style, properly spaced, and no tables. Our new venue, Milburn Country Club, has installed an upgraded air filtration system, and access to the first floor meeting room does not require an elevator.
There will be no charge for this first meeting. Since we do have to pay for the meeting room, there will be a donation jar at the door for voluntary contributions to defray this cost. While we won't have our normal silent book auction, we will have a limited live book auction at the meeting.
