  • Shopping on Highway 55

    The annual Highway 55 Yard Sale, with the hub being the Finchville Community Center in Finchville, endured a cold and rainy Saturday this past weekend, which was part of the event’s 4-day run. The sale, which stretches across the county and beyond, encourages others to set up sales, too. The First Christian Church, for instance, also had a community-wide yard sale that day. The turnout was brisk at Finchville.
