    We’ll be joined by Stephen Foutes, Director, Missouri Division of Tourism, who will give us a big picture view of the state and discuss a variety of things to do from home. Michael Sweeney and Morgan Dennehy of the Missouri Bicentennial will talk about the popular Missouri Explorers program launched exclusively for the bicentennial as a fun way to travel the state with friends and family. We’ll also talk with Diane Hannah about the special Missouri Main Street Bicentennial Passport.
