This is a question put to all residents of Mayer and those in surrounding areas. Does Mayer want to have a Farmer’s Market this year? Even though the gardening season will be later than usual, now is the time to consider having a market. If there are enough people interested in bringing their goods to a designated spot in town, a market will be held on a weekly basis. Call the city offices to make your intention known. I will publish the results in upcoming columns. The telephone number is 657-1502.
The annual Mayer Rising Community Festival is scheduled for this Saturday, July 13. Bring the entire family for good fun and good eats. The main attraction will be the antique car and tractor show. Secondly, will be the craft booths in the Community Center. There will be activities for children of all ages going on in the Old School House Park on Blue Jay Avenue. There will also be a baseball game with a drawing for beef and other prizes during the game, starting at 1 p.m. The day’s events will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. overall.
Mayer Car and Cycle Night

The compost site will be open on Wednesday evenings from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. Bring your storm refuse and garden waste at these times when there will be someone on duty to let you into the site. There are rules and regulations pertaining to using the site. Please do not abuse the compost site by bringing other junk to dump there.
