INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Mayor Eileen Weir is jumping from an airplane to commemorate the reopening of the newly-renovated Harry S Truman Library and Museum.
Weir will tandem jump today, July 2, at 9 a.m. with the Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team. The jump was rescheduled from July 1 due to cloudy conditions.
“I said take it slow. I’m not in a hurry,” Weir said. “It was great!”
It was the mayor’s first time skydiving.
The library reopens after a 2-year, $29 million renovation. The new entrance and permanent exhibition constituted the largest renovation at the museum since it opened in 1957.
“We’ve worked really hard on this project,” Weir said.
