Rooted 242 Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Moberly residents, community leaders, and politicians turned out Monday morning for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Rooted 242. The facility, located on West Coates Street, provides services for teens and young adults, ages 18-26. Director Amy Martel says this ceremony was a long time coming.

The cafe will provide the necessary funds to run Rooted 242. It will serve a variety of breakfast and lunch items. Martel details the services they will provide.

Among the politicians at the ribbon-cutting ceremony was Missouri Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe. He says this is a facility that is needed in the state.

Portions of Rooted 242 are still under renovation. The cafe is open for the next few weeks Thursday through Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm. Once the whole building is open hours will be from 6 am to 6 pm for six days a week.
