    I would like to add one more guest… Unlike the other events, I assume there will NOT be dinner served at this event, is that correct?

  2. American Public Square Says:

    Hi, Peter! You are correct. Thursday’s program is not a dinner event but there will be a reception beginning at 6 p.m. If you know your guest’s name, feel free to call our office at 816.235.5067 or e-mail sami@americanpublicsquare.org and we will prepare a name tag for them to pick up at the check-in table!
