Having only been in Hannibal since June 25th, this is an excellent opportunity for me to get to know Hannibal and the people of the area. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about “Tom Sawyer Days”. My family and I are excited to be involved with this annual event,” stated Dr. Allen.

Hannibal-LaGrange University’s faculty, staff, and students, along with Dr. Allen and his family, will be participating in the parade as well. The Allen family will be featured on the university’s float while the faculty, staff, and students will be handing out candy to the parade’s crowd.
