ARNOLD — The White House says President Barack Obama's town hall meeting on his 100th day in office will be in Arnold on Wednesday.

The event is scheduled for 10:20 a.m. at Fox Senior High School in the suburban St. Louis city. The White House says the event is open to the public, but a ticket is needed. Doors open at 8 a.m.

The White House has said Obama will discuss his first 100 days in office and take questions about the administration's agenda.

The 100th day in office is often used to measure the performance of a president in his first term.

The White House said Missouri was chosen for the event because families and workers here have felt the impact of the economic crisis as much as anyone.
