Mayer News for July 25

Mayer Rising

The Mayer Rising Festival, which was held last Saturday, was a huge success. In spite of the threatening weather, a total of 125 antique cars were on display. I don’t the exact number of trucks and tractors.

Children of all ages enjoyed the train rides through the park. The food was delicious and the craft show brought many inside the Community Center. Thanks to all who participated in any way. See you next year!

But…if you can’t wait until next year, come to Mayer every Tuesday night between 5-8 p.m. to view the many cars and cycles that have been coming to town. The show takes place on 2nd Street North between Highway 25 and Blue Jay Avenue. There were about 30 vehicles on display last Tuesday. Members of Zion Lutheran High School will be on hand to sell refreshments, and also the Kettle Korn man.

If you are just passing through town, take time to look at all the expertise each person has done to their car or cycle. Remember, there is no charge to participate in the show. The show will continue on a weekly basis through September. Call Tom at 952-657-2119 to enter.


Farmer’s Market

The Farmer’s Market will be held each Tuesday in Mayer during the hours of the car and cycle show. It will be located in the same block as the show. Bring your goods at this time to sell. The time and location should be great. Let’s give it a try and see what happens as the weeks go by.


National Night Out

There will be a National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at the Mayer Community Center. It will be held from 6-8 p.m. there will be personnel from the police department, ambulance service, fire department, etc., to give demonstrations and answer your questions. Come meet the people in your community.
