Mini Quilt Auction at the Shell Knob School Gym

Sunday - September 22, 2019 at 2 p.m. for about an hour or when all quilts are sold

                  Quilts made by the Shell Knob Quilters Guild

    These Quilters do excellent work and the Graduates of LUC Boys Ranch have each received one at graduation for a long time. 

This year, all of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to LUC Boys Ranch

Come see the talents of these quilters and help our boys at the same time!


The Trades Thrift Store reopens after 1:30 p.m. for your shopping convenience.  Be sure to check out all of the new areas. The Store is located at Carr Lane near the Jct of HWY 86 and Hwy 39 3 miles West of the Ranch on Hwy 86

The LUC Ranch is excited about the new areas to shop in at the thrift store - The Trading Post on HWY 86 near JCT. 39 (Carr Lane).  We have some new pieces of furniture, buffalo meat, great treasures - new and old.  Come see the changes being made.  We are looking for volunteers to work in it for a few hours on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.  The store is OPEN now Tues through Saturday 9 a.m - 4 pm

If you have any items to donate, bring them by the Ranch or we can arrange to pick them up when we are in your area.  Spring clean-up time is a good time to help us replenish the store or to let someone discover a treasure that they have been looking for over the years.  If you make a craft and would like to donate it to the Ranch to help support boys, let us know. 417-779-5374  Our staff will set up a time with you.  

LUC Trading Post Motors sell donated cars.

Come find a good deal on a used vehicle.  You may also donate your vehicle to our "Mechanics in the Making" program and get the real value for your used vehicle.  There are many programs out there that will take your car, but many will only give you junk yard price because they don't have a program that utilizes the vehicle in a training program for a year.  Call for more details.  Trading in your vehicle to a car dealer limits the amount that you will also recieve.
