Spring Fling Livens a Downtown Friday Afternoon

Lamar Chamber Directors welcomed several new retail additions to Main Street during Friday’s Spring Fling event.

Vendor’s Gallery is open at 122 South Main Street.  Lenora Springer said people can rent booth space at $1 a square foot to display their merchandise or she said, “A person can bring in several items and just sell it on consignment and we’ll collect a percentage for the handling fee.”  The store is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 5:30pm and from 10am to 4pm every Saturday, and shoe and boot repairs are still available at the rear of the store.  Call for more information at 336-0318.

Healthy Places held two opening events, on Thursday and another for Friday which featured several students from One Step Up from Project HOPE and their assorted displays and booths.  Kids were providing information for some local projects including downtown beautification, doggy doo-doo stations for local parks, their awareness about abandoned houses project and a fund to purchase sod for the Lincoln School.  LiveWell and Healthy Places director, Emily Neischburg said the headquarters, in the former PCDI offices on Main Street, will become an information focal point for community activities relating to healthier lifestyles.

Shoppers could search for some bargains during the Lamar Merchant’s Spring Fling, watch the balloon man create, stretch, pull, twist and tie his concoctions into toys for area youngsters, or enjoy several square dance reviews along West Olive Street, backed by the music of DJ Vic Coberly until 8 that evening.
