The Branch

The LOMO Club officially re-opened this New Year’s Eve as a wedding and event space. The club was re-branded as The Branch by Jefferson City locals Krista Bonnot and Justin Davis, who updated the event hall, bar area, and two-bedroom apartment, which can be rented as a bridal suite.

Jefferson City VA Clinic

Jefferson City’s new Veterans Affairs clinic opened this January. The clinic is larger than past clinics so it can accommodate more patients, and the location will offer new services such as eye care, women’s health services, and podiatry. This will allow more patients to stay local when receiving treatment rather than commuting to Columbia.
