From the June 24, 1920 edition of the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 8:

Burlington Junction Will Celebrate.
Plans have been completed for the celebration to be given at Burlington Junction, on July 3 by Rolla Dicks Post, American Legion.

In the afternoon Hon. Lewis C. Gabbert, prominent attorney of St. Joseph, will give a talk on “Americanism.” The celebration is to be an all day basket dinner affair, and plans are being made to accommodate a record crowd that day.

In addition to an extraordinarily good display of fireworks, arrangements have been made to secure other attractions. An airplane has been secured and those desiring to make a trip in the air will have an opportunity.
