The Independence Chamber of Commerce is holding its second annual “In the City” Day this Friday. It’s meant for those who live or work in Independence to show some hometown pride.

Participants, including businesses, have bought orange T-shirt for the day, and those wearing the shirts gather at noon in the chamber parking lot, 210 W. Truman Road, for an “Independence family photo.” There’s also a creative Facebook photo contest. Call Alex Colley at the chamber, 816-252-4745, for more information.
