Spring is here and we’re all enjoying this warmer weather!
Spring means time to think about lawn work again. The Rock Island Church is hosting their annual lawn mower tune up day this Saturday at the church. Big thanks to them for this great community service.
Saturday is also spring cleaning day for a lot of residents of Hope as they host their annual City Wide Garage Sale Day. Head on over for some great deals.
Friday the 17th is one of my favorite events of the year, the high school Promenade. Before moving to the area, I had never heard of this; but what a great way for the community to show their support of the local students. Come on out at 6:30pm and see our young citizens dressed up in their finest before heading off to their big night.
The next night, the Hospital Auxiliary will host the fun. Come on out to the community building for fun for the whole family. Kids games, Bingo, silent auctions, raffles, great food, and an exciting live auction; all benefiting the Herington Municipal Hospital.
The last weekend in April will round out another fun month with a street dance and cruise in Friday night and the Throttle Jockey’s Car Show and Drag Races on Saturday. Remember on Friday night, Broadway will be closed from Walnut to Main. Saturday morning from 6am to a little after 1pm, a good portion of the downtown streets including Broadway, 1st Street, Main, Walnut, Day, and McClaren. At past events, we’ve had issues with people going around the barricades. Please respect the safety of the event participants, plan ahead, and take an alternative route to your destination.
We had over 200 cars registered from as far away as Oklahoma and Nebraska and spectators from all the surrounding counties and all we heard all day was compliments on what a great event it was.
Thank you to the City of Herington employees who contributed so much and thank you to our Chamber volunteers for helping with the vendor portion of the show.
