The waters are slowly receding and hopefully clean-up will begin soon. The AmeriCorps St. Louis may be available to help clean flooded houses. If you have been affected by the flood, please call a special hotline phone number setup by the City of Clarksville and AmeriCorps:

The kitchen is is slowing down and will be serving breakfast & lunch food most of the day, but no longer serving full dinners.

Thanks to everyone who cooked, but food donations are no longer needed. Please donate through the United Fund of Calumet instead.

The kitchen expects to increase service again when clean-up is more active.

It was fifty two years ago that nine men and women from Clarksville, Paynesville and Annada Missouri, including my own grandfather G Jack Jones Jr., started a grass roots campaign for the benefit of our local community organizations. Today’s Calumet United Fund continues to strive in the original founders’ spirit of service to our community.

The Calumet United Fund hopes you can join them as they pay tribute to those original founding members from 1960:

  • Harry H. Crane: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Milton F. Duvall, Jr.: Clarksville, Missouri
  • William H. Guyton: Paynesville, Missouri
  • G. Jack Jones, Jr.: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Francis G. Luke: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Mrs. L. Bryant Mackey: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Mrs. H. A. Wells: Paynesville, Missouri
  • J. R. Whitmore: Annada, Missouri
  • J. D. Williamson: Clarksville, Missouri
