Jan 29, 2022 | by The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has been a continuous presence in Jefferson City for 100 years.

However, its history in the city goes back even farther.

Maj. Curtiss Hartley and the Salvation Army hosted a breakfast Friday at Capitol Plaza Hotel to kick off a year of activities to commemorate the organization’s past century of serving the Capital City community.

“It is an opportunity for us to begin a celebration. We’ve got friends who have come in this morning to be with us to kick off the celebration, have a little bit of fellowship together, talk a little bit about the history of the Salvation Army and introduce this 100th year celebration,” Hartley said. “It’s our opportunity to just each month thank the community for the support they give to the Salvation Army.”
