  • On Sunday, Neosho residents will have the chance to attend the city's first Blessing of the Bikes event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the north side of the Neosho Square.
    The square will be blocked off from the corner of Spring and Wood Street to Spring and Washington Street.
    Paul Richardson, organizer of the event, said the day will include several vendors, offering food, setting up displays and providing other services, as well as a day lineup full of live entertainment.
    He said there are currently four bands signed up to perform on Sunday, and music will kick off at 10 a.m.
    The music will consist of contemporary Christian and rock.
    "This is the first year, we're going to be starting small trying to get the event started for Neosho," Richardson said. "We'll hopefully have something to build on here as we go."
    While music and vendors will begin at 10 a.m., the first motorcycle ride will also depart at that time.
    Richardson said the rides are scheduled every 45 minutes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    The morning will also include a short street church service, set for 11 a.m. on the square.
    The day's main event, when the bikers receive the blessing, is scheduled for 3 p.m. when Father Henry (Hank) Grodecki of St. Canera's Catholic Church will perform the blessing.
    Sam's Cellar will also be offering a beer garden nearby, located in front of their business.
    The Neosho City Council approved the beer garden in a previous council meeting.
    Richardson said he was due to the death in the fire."
    An autopsy on Charles was being performed Thursday and Jennings noted hopefully they will have some results as to the cause of death.
    "At this point, no reason to think anything other than just a fire, but due to the death we will be investigating, trying to get some more details," he said. "We have no reason to suspect foul play. We are going to interview her find out why she was on the outside; I think there is reason for that. We are just going to talk to her when she is able to talk and put some more pieces together and I am sure that it will all make sense then."
    The cause of the fire, which totally destroyed the house, is still being investigated by the Missouri State Fire Marshal's Office.
    Next of kin were notified.
