Swimming lessons draw to close
TRUMAN — Many wonderful things have appeared in Truman, such as all 50 state flags that are flown below the American flags as you enter Truman from either direction, also the large photos of “Truman Past” on some of the downtown buildings and school building. The photos were made possible by the Marvin Bosshart Family Foundation. It is worth a visit to view.
