Rainy Day for Tea

Several groups of friends made the rounds in downtown Lamar this past rainy and snowy Wednesday, to take advantage of a Progressive Spring Tea. Developed by the Lamar Chamber and Retail Trades Group, the tea consisted to traveling to participating stores between Noon and 5pm and receiving a new ingredient for the tea. Once all the stops had been made, in order, you would have what you needed for your tea.

The first mandatory stop was Thoughts in Bloom. There, you’d receive your list of stores, leading you to each stop, where you’d eventually come to Main Street Shoppe where you would sit down and enjoy your rewards. Participating sponsors included: Thoughts in Bloom, Curves, Carla’s Dress Shop, Country Home Furnishings, The Perk, Flower Boutique, The Lassie, Robinson’s Printing, Crafters Corner/Country Treasures, Bettianns, J&N’s/Mr. D’s and Main Street Shoppe.

The Retail Trades Committee met Wednesday, April 13 and discussed plans for Summerfest, set for June 4, downtown Lamar. Although the events have not been finalized, booth space will be priced for chamber members and non-members. It was also discussed that the annual Haunted House event will be conducted by the Lamar Fire Department for next year. Retail Trades members were invited to set up a display table at Lamar Community College during orientation days, August 18 and 19. Members will seek sponsor involvement for contributing coupons and informational flyers which will help acquaint new students to the community. The next Retail Trades meeting will be held May 11 at Noon, at the Lamar Chamber offices.
