The Craters of the Moon/Arco KOA owned by Neil and Sheri Partyka is the the Chambers featured business this week. Neil (because someone has to stay home and greet the guests,) will address the Chamber of Commerce meeting on Tuesday, August 10th at 8:00 AM at Pickles.
Even with a few minutes of suspense from a thunder storm, business was brisk at the Saturday Market last week. Travelers found the new “sandwich signs” a help in getting stopped, and the fresh produce and live music pulled the customers in! Locals, “out-of-state”ers and (even) Idaho travelers with trailers were stopping to see what was available.
The Saturday Market featured live entertainment on July 31. Mark and Nicole Wheeler serenaded the crowd with fiddle and guitar in the early part of the morning. About 10 AM, Rockhead, a group composed of Mike Harris, Gary McCormick and Mary Bush. Vendors included the Lost River Craft Coop, the Katie Brownlee Kids with Cotton Candy, Mountain Man Produce, Tate Firewood and Art and the Lost River Quilt Club. The Chamber of Commerce provided all-you-could drink -free lemonade (cups $0.50) , sold $5.00 Atomic Days T-shirts and gave away coupons for local businesses.
