October 2013 Extras

Did you know...

…the first church in Sugar Creek was the United Methodist Church (then called the Methodist Episcopal Church)? The first service was held in 1904 in the home of Col. N. P. Simonds, a grain man who had been commander of Kansas City’s Third Regiment Infantry.  His summer home was in Sugar Creek, like many Kansas Citians who spent their summers living near Fairmount Park.

What Sugar Creek Means to Me

"As a kid growing up in Sugar Creek, going to fish at Roper’s Pond is my greatest memory.  Roper’s  land should be made into a park."
Steven Strutton

Wish List

"Lower our sewer bills!  How could they have gone up so much?”
 "Bring back curbside recycling”
"Good coffee and somewhere to drink it!”

What do you think would make Sugar Creek better?
