Are You Ready for Some Football?

1929-style that is. KU, K State, MU - they all have those football rivalries! Watch them play each other in 1929 and early 1930s films. Then listen to commentary by the Kansas City Chiefs’ Historian, Bob Moore, as he regales us with a history of the sport in those early days and talks a little about the Chiefs. Bring your own beverage and we’ll provide snacks. For more information call (913) 248-2360 or email suhler@cityofshawnee.org.

Hair Bobbing for Love
July 11, 2015

10:00 am to 11:30 am

Hair Bobbing for Love
Locks of Love (pdf)

At Shawnee Town 1929, donate 10” or more of your hair to Locks of Love. If your hair is short, what a perfect reason for growing it long! In the 1920s, the “bob” became the fashion statement of the decade. A blunt cut level with the bottom of the ear, it signaled the beginning of an era of free-spirited young women who chose to defy tradition.

All hair donations will go to Locks of Love, a public, non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Hair stylists from Choppers Hair Studio in Shawnee and barbers from Metro Barber College will do the cutting in our 1920s-outfitted Bousman Barber Shop.

So be the “bee’s knees” and save (or grow) those locks for love. We’ll have 1920s- inspired refreshments on hand to celebrate good times and your donation! For more information call (913) 248-2360 or email
