Weeping Water Newsletter
If you have been looking around Weeping Water lately you have seen numerous community restorations taking place. Included in this week's newsletter are pictures and information about some of the great things going on in our community. Also included in this week's newsletter are updated and new community events.
Weeping Water Renovation Projects
As you can see, there are many renovation and improvement projects going on around Weeping Water. Including the renovation of the Weeping Water Auditorium. Recently, two buildings were torn down. These buildings were the old Nickel's Trailor Sales Building and the old 4-H Building. I'm not 100% sure, but I have heard that the space where Nickel's Trailor Sales was is going to be the new site for parking when the Auditorium is finished.
There is also the great addition of the swings and playground at the ballpark where the sand volleyball court used to be. This has already been a popular place for the little ones. I don't think I've ever seen it without someone playing on it!
If you have been down to the city lakes lately you have surely noticed the huge bridges just added. One bridge goes over the lake and the other bridge goes across the creek from the City Lakes to River Street where Weeping Water's Municipal Pool is located.
Another new addition to our community starting to take place is the bike trail. The formation of the bike trail has started in the area between the white bridge and the green bridge next to the railroad tracks.
As you can see our community is taking great steps toward renovation. The community looks wonderful and these new plans are making Weeping Water more and more appealing to visitors.

Brad White's ministry includes vocal music as well as impressive saxophone and piano artistry. His talent and humor make for an enjoyable experience, but his focus is always on pointing people to the religious meaning of the concert. A concert with Brad is an event that appeals to all ages. Brad includes music from the great hymns of the church to southern gospel to modern praise and worship. The younger crowd is awed by the the "flying fingers" on the instruments; the older are blessed by the inclusion of yesterday's classics. Brad White has received two Grammy Nominations.
Spoken 4 Quartet from Branson, MO is a ministry event enjoyed by the whole church! You won't want to miss this incredible concert! Back by popular demand! Don't miss this awesome concert with Grammy & Dove Award Winner Tommy Fairchild, and one of the lowest bass singers you will ever hear!
