In and Around Hannibal: May 11, 2013

Rita Hooper 


Wasn’t it nice to see the town a buzz with folks as they toured the community yard sales?  Twenty-seven sales had registered, but there were a number of procrastinators whose sales didn’t get listed plus a number who set up spontaneously.

Plan a head for next year – probably the first weekend in May – for the sixth annual community yard sale.

Thanks again and hats off to Carl and Barbara Salvagin for organizing this event. I’d be interested in hearing if any of my readers have other ideas/ways we can bring folks to town.

When we first came to down, we used to have Father’s Day at the Mill where steam engines were the draw.

But the mill was sold and that ended that event. But perhaps an outdoor quilt or art show might be worth considering. Just food for thought.

The library will be sponsoring an evening on the lawn I believe and then there will be the Concert in the Park in July 7. Fulton Community Band and Anybody’s Guess will be planning and one or two other groups. Those two events should help gather the greater Hannibal community together over the summer.

In the meantime, there should be enough to keep you all busy cleaning up after winter, and getting the gardens and lawns in shape.

Remember, spring is spruce up time. Hannibal is a good place to live — working together we can make it even better
