Mayer News for Aug. 1

Car and Cycle Show

This past Tuesday was the third week of the Car and Cycle show in Mayer. It was the biggest show so far, as people came from near and far with their vehicles to put on display, and many came just to look. The evening was ideal, the food was great and the many oh’s and ah’s could be heard throughout.

A big thank you to all who participate in the show, and to the many businesses offering the specialties for the evening. Hope to see more of you next Tuesday. The show takes place on 2nd Street North between Highway 25 and Bluejay Avenue from 5-8 p.m.

It has been suggested to me that the owner of the vehicle have a sign in the window with the brand name and year of the item and the owner’s name. Just a thought for future shows.


Farmer’s Market

The Farmer’s Market will be held every Tuesday at the same location as the Car and Cycle Show, on 2nd Street North between Highway 25 and Blue Jay Avenue, from 5-8 p.m. Bring your goods at this time. Perhaps you should also bring a table to display them on. A few tables are available to use on a first-come, first-served basis.


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 Sheriff’s Office, ambulance service, fire department, etc., to give demonstrations and answer your questions. come meet the people in your community.
