Deadline Friday for U.S.
36 garage sales
Friday is the deadline for placing a garage sale ad with the Jewell County newspapers for the community-wide garage sales being held in conjunction with the Highway 36 Treasure Hunt planned for Sept. 19, 20 and 21.
With the placement of a written ad by the deadline date, the information will be published in the Jewell County newspapers, along with placement on the Treasure Hunt's Mankato city map showing the location of the sales. Issues of the newspaper advertising the community-wide garage sales will be on Mankato news stands around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and the garage sale descriptions will be posted on the newspapers' website which will be found at: jewellcountynewspapers. com.
Bring in your written description of items for sale, 40 words of less for a cost of $6, and you will be presented with a yard stake advertising your participation in this community wide event.
Also this year, Mankato Chamber of Commerce will print a pinpoint map showing the names and addresses of the garage sales. These maps will be available at Mankato Express, Mac's Kwik Shop and Kier's Thriftway. There will be large signs placed outside the three businesses telling of the garage sales maps located within.
This marks the ninth annual US 36 Highway Treasure Hunt and Community Garage Sales event.
archery shoot; chili cook-off cancelled
Lovewell State Park hosted its final special events of the season on Sunday.
Though the weather seemed to be ideal, there were no entries in the chili cook-off, so the event was cancelled.
The 3D archery shoot had four youth division shooters, one in the women's division and 20 in the men's division. Winning the youth division was Jarrett Arasmith of Jewell. Keshia and T.J. Druba of Lincoln, Neb., swept the women's and men's division respectively for the third consecutive year. Perry Ridgway of Fairfield topped all competitors in the steel deer competition.
Brent Scott of Waddell and Reed in Belleville and Cam Grabast of Mac Island Outdoors in Superior sponsored targets and prizes for the 3D archery shoot.
