Post-Thanksgiving KC Events
Can you believe that 2018 has moved by this quickly? Thanksgiving is this week, which means most of the holiday events begin this weekend. Kansas City, MO is a beautiful place to be during the winter holidays. Between the tree lightings and the special live shows and the shopping, there is something to do for everybody. Remember that this time of the year also means that there is a limited amount of time to use your dental insurance benefits before the new year begins. If you have not gotten both of your dental exams and cleanings this year, you will want to do that soon.
