TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Capitol Federal will serve as the Title Sponsor for the Spirit of Kansas for the 21st year straight.

Capitol Federal Savings Bank announced on Thursday, May 25, that the Shawnee Co. Board of Commissioners recognized it as the Title Sponsor of the 2023 Spirit of Kansas during a scheduled meeting.

During the meeting, officials said CapFed also presented the Board with a check for $25,000.

Capitol Federal noted that it celebrates more than two decades of the title sponsorship for the Capital City’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display. In 2002, the event was jeopardized due to a lack of funds and the banking network stepped up to ensure the long-honored tradition continues. This will mark the 21st year.

“This is something that has been very important to us,” said John Dicus, Capitol Federal CEO. “This started back in 2002 with our donation and the support of that. We appreciate everything you do to help bring that spirit to northeast Kansas and Shawnee Co. each year.”

The annual Independence Day fireworks display will be held on July 4 at Lake Shawnee.
