• Chamber Showcase has nice turnout

    Any of the more than 800 visitors to the Chamber of Commerce’s Community Showcase, entitled, “Grow with Shelby County,” would agree that event was even bigger and better than last year.

    The exhibits and booths spilled out of the Shelby County High School gym into the school’s foyer and even into the parking lot, where a Farm Safety demonstration was put on by Judy White, who has a dairy farm in Southville, and Jessica Woods, a 4-H horse leader who brought one of her horses to the event.

    If you’ve shopped at Victoria’s Secret, you have probably seen the plastic display shelves containing makeup. Maybe you can recall the plastic open/close sign you see when entering a Big O Tires. Europeans may have seen the giant plastic European-style Santa Claus Lego figure resting atop display shelves of the popular toy.
