The City of Independence announced the dedication of the Don B. Reimal Community Suite at the Cable Dahmer Arena on Friday, Jan. 29, during a home Kansas City Mavericks game. Mayor Reimal served the community for more than 20 years on Council and as Mayor from 2006 to 2014.
“Mayor Reimal was a committed public servant and loved the arena,” Mayor Eileen Weir said. “The dedication of this suite in his honor is only fitting as he worked diligently to bring the facility to the City of Independence. His idea has now brought hundreds of acts and thousands of visitors to our community, with millions of dollars in economic impact.”
Members of the Reimal family joined Mayor Weir and At-Large Councilmember Karen Deluccie at the game where a special announcement was made. Images are provided below.
