    That new motto, along with a new flag, are part of the Pioneer Village 40th anniversary celebration scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 20, at Becknell Hall.

    City officials invite all residents to celebrate the free event, which will include the retirement of the city's tornado debt, paid off in full as of June 2014.

    The city has been paying off the debt since 1996, when the area was heavily damaged by a tornado, the most significant event in its 40-year history.
