Shelter Fountain Celebration
The centerpiece of Shelter's Home Office is our magnificent Fountain—a Columbia landmark for more than half a century. Each spring, hundreds gather to enjoy music, family fun and the activation of Shelter's Fountain for another season. The event in May features live music, clowns, balloons and fun yard games for the kids. Bring your family and help Shelter celebrate the Fountain.
Please return to this webpage early in 2018 for details of the 53rd annual Fountain Celebration.
Concerts in the Gardens
The 41st season of Shelter's annual Concerts in the Gardens series will conclude on Saturday, August 17, 2017, with "An Evening with Elvis," at 7:00 p.m. The special Saturday-evening show will feature two Shelter Insurance® co-workers: Paul Larimore of our Training Department and Tom Pea, Shelter agent at Carmel, Indiana.
The show is free and starts at 7 p.m., Saturday, August 19, in the Shelter Insurance Gardens at the Home Office. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs for seating. Shelter Insurance Gardens are at the northwest corner of Shelter’s Home Office grounds at 1817 W. Broadway in Columbia, Missouri.
Christmas Tree Lighting
Each December the Shelter family celebrates the spirit of the holiday season with a traditional Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Shelter co-workers and members of the community gather to hear West Middle School's band and choir, visit with each other and with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and of course, to see the lighting of the tree on the lawn of our Columbia, Mo., office.
The 2017 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is set for Thursday, November 30, 2017.
