garage sale logoWho loves to spend a day hitting garage sales? This Saturday, May 31st, is the annual Area Wide Garage Sale. We have expanded our advertising again this year with garage sale ads in the Herington Times and White City’s Prairie Post as well as the newspapers in Abilene, Salina, Junction City and the paper aboard Fort Riley. We should be seeing a lot of people from outside of our area coming in for the event.

We would like to recognize the five businesses that are sponsoring the printing of the garage sale maps and the classified ads: the West Walnut Market, AmPride, Sweet Creations, Mary Kay consultant Tammie Jinkerson-Prosch, and the Railer Café.

Garage Sale maps are available today at the Chamber office, the West Walnut Market, and Sweet Creations. On the day of the sale, they will be available at participating garage sales.

The Chamber’s Fun Committee is hard at work right now planning a fun, new event for August 2nd called the Wild Wench Photo Scavenger Hunt! You are not going to want to miss this one-start thinking about forming teams of 5 and get ready for a wacky day of pirate themed silliness!photo scavenger hunt tshirt logo

tshirtLast Friday I attended the final planning meeting for the upcoming Throttle Jockeys Car Show & Drag Races.  Our community is so lucky to have such a great group of people putting on this fun event. If the weather clears up by Saturday, we could see over 300+ visitors in our community! How very exciting!

Come out Saturday morning and support the Throttle Jockeys and our vendors.  Also make sure you stop in and visit with our newest business, Prairie Chic, which will be opening their doors this Friday.  I am very excited to see what this unique venue is going to bring!

Registration is now open for the Area Wide Garage Sale, scheduled for May 31st. Come by the Chamber office and register your sale. A standard listing is $5 and an upgraded listing is $7.50.  We’ll be advertising the event in 6 local newspapers all over the surrounding areas.
