Due to the guidance from medical professionals intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have determined to close to Great Overland Station through April 30, at which time we will assess the situation and update you when anything changes.
While we are closed, we are still available to visit with you about renting our building for your future events—wedding, anniversary, meetings, etc. Please call the office at 785-232-5533 for information. We will be checking messages frequently.
We want to let our members and friends know that we're doing all that we can to conserve precious resources and reduce expenses during this time especially. In an effort to minimize wind damage to the flags which flank both sides of the BNSF Plaza, we have temporarily taken down all of the flags. While the Great Overland Station is temporarily closed to the public, volunteer seamstresses will repair each flag to prepare it for a return to glory later this year. You may also notice that the lights which normally illuminate the flags have been temporarily turned off to conserve electricity in this time of national crisis.
Please consider helping to support the ongoing expense of maintaining the Corridor of Flags and/or the historic Station by contributing here.
Thank you all for your continued support of the Great Overland Station and its programs, as well as the Corridor of Flags and All Veterans Memorial, through good times and bad. We certainly appreciate you and look forward to being back in service as soon as possible!
We know that Americans will make it through this crisis and come back stronger than ever. As inscribed on our Plaza, “In God We Trust”!
