The Taste of Downtown drawings will be available only to ticket holders. There will be additional free drawings for the Love Local Celebration and everyone is welcome to enter.
Single Socks is a Community Thrift Store dedicated to supporting anti-hunger projects. The store is located at 111 West College Ave and is a favorite store for many Grant county residents.
