Tracy KimberlinThanks to everyone who attended a retirement reception for Tracy Kimberlin who will retire Dec. 31 after 35 years of leading the Convention & Visitors Bureau. 

From former board members to good friends, dozens of guests attended the event on Dec. 1, one of many expected to take place in the next few weeks to honor and recognize Tracy for his legendary career.

Along with hugs and handshakes, speeches were made, a few jokes were told and a special video featured congratulatory messages from a variety of individuals who have worked with Tracy over the years, including Bass Pro founder Johnny Morris and Gov. Mike Parson. Mayor Ken McClure even presented a proclamation naming Dec. 1, 2022, Tracy Kimberlin Day.
