The Chamber's new Business After Hours series is having its next occurrence this evening (Thursday) at Homefront Real Estate from 5:00 to 7:00, 67 E. Jefferson, and tomorrow morning's Chamber Coffee is at Madison County Realty, 65 E. Jefferson. If you happen to be in the market to buy a house, it looks like Friday would be a great day to go looking, and Monday will be even better. The forecast says 56 degrees! (I'll believe it when I see it.) It seems like a good time to be a seller, too, particularly if you have a house that could be listed in the $160,000 range, where there are hardly any current listings. Having just been through this process recently, my favorite website for scanning the local listings is here.

On Saturday morning at 8:30 there's a community support event for the Boy Scouts at First Christian Church until 9:30, and at 9:00, the Spring Fling Craft & Vendor Fair begins at the Methodist Church, 309 E. Jefferson, with beef-burger lunch being served from 11:00 to 1:00. They will have a variety of local crafters and home-based vendors selling, crafts, goodies, and handmade items, all to help with building a new welcome center for the church and other outreach projects for the community. Re-home is open this weekend too, so head on over to their new location at 106 N. 1st Ave. after you hit the Spring Fling! More info on re:home coming to the WC blog soon.
|Open Mic Night at The Winterset Stage:|
7:00 p.m., Saturday, March 8th
There is great family-friendly entertainment at The Winterset Stage at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, with their Open Mic Night. If you were hoping to perform, the lineup is full. But you should go to cheer on your family and friends, because you are sure to know some of the performers. It's the Stage's own version of American Idol mixed with America's Got Talent, and the audience gets to pick the winner. This one is for a free-will donation at the door, so get there early!
Ever wonder how many pancake breakfasts one small town can support in a single year? The answer: unlimited, with extra butter, please! The Post Prom Committee is having a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning, March 9th, from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the American Legion Hall, for a freewill donation. They will also have biscuits and gravy! Your freewill donation will go toward supporting post-prom activities.
That's all for now. Have a great weekend in Winterset!
