SWAPSWe received our I-70 swap blocks from our St. Louis partners at the April meeting, and the finished projects need to be returned at our June meeting to go back to St. Louis. We will have our swap projects and partners revealed at the August meeting. If you have any questions (or need to get your block!), contact Nicole or the KCMQG email account.
