“We want to get the whole town involved .... The idea is to bring people into town,” she said.
On Friday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., the Sunman Rural Fire Department will have an open house and from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Grillin’ with Bill will be held at FCN Bank. In addition, the third annual Drug Dropoff Day is 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Persons can drop off old and unused prescription and over-the-counter medications at George’s Pharmacy with no questions asked. Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon, the museum at the town hall can be toured.
A community yard sale will be held both days, and Sunman American Legion has spaces available for $10 each. Some of the businesses will have specials. FCN “is allowing chamber members to set up behind the bank at no charge ... to showcase their businesses.
“McPhersons is having a huge open house/sale, and the beautification league is having a plant sale in front of the former Ripley-Ohio-Dearborn Special Education Cooperative center.”
In addition, the president revealed, “We’re going to do a farmers’ market beginning May 26 at the old Nedderman’s Feed Mill downtown. It will be held every Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon.”
All vendors must be from Indiana, and they can sell food items or crafts as long as they are the ones growing or making them.
“We’re trying it this year and will go from there .... Word of mouth is selling it,” she noted.
