The Midtown Market is well underway! The market is held every Tuesday, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Nevada City Hall parking lot. We have four weekly produce vendors at the market, one baked goods vendor, a BBQ food vendor and State Farm Insurance. We also have drop-in vendors – we have had a scroll saw craftperson, Youth and Shelter Services of Eastern Story County, Golden K Kiwanis and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The Nevada Police Department and Fire Department are alternating weeks at the market so the kids can see the different types of equipment each department uses. Story County Medical will be visiting the market the first Tuesday of the month, offering blood pressure checks and CPR demonstrations. They also bring the county ambulance for the kids to check out. If your business or organization is interested in participating in the market, please call the Chamber office at 382-6538.
The Nevada Community Band is performing at 7 p.m. every Tuesday evening through July 22 at the Nevada City Hall parking lot. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the sweet sounds of our very talented band!
Lincoln Highway Days is just around the corner – Aug. 22, 23 and 24! A schedule for the events will be included in the August water bills! Of course, in order to hold Lincoln Highway Days, there is a need for volunteers! If you would like to help with the Lincoln Highway Dash, set up picnic tables, sell tickets for the inflatables or help with clean up – call the Chamber office. The more hands, the easier and faster things get done. There is still time to sign up as a food vendor or a craft or flea market vendor. Registration forms are available at the Chamber office or by visiting the Chamber website.
It will be another fun and busy summer in Nevada! Watch the Nevada Journal and listen to KASI in Ames and KFJB/KIX 101.1 in Marshalltown for upcoming events. You can always call the Chamber at 382-6538 or visit our website, www.nevadaiowa.org, if you need more information.
