Kids nite at the farmers' market

The Tuesday Night Farmers' Market had extra excitement last night with Kid's Nite. The Jasper Foundation had free face painting.
St Luke's Lutheran Church let kids do some crafts.
Kids could help groom a dog, a treat sponsored by the SPAW.
The Carnegie Players provided some entertainment with selections from their upcoming play, The Sound of Music.
The Alliance Bank gave away popcorn, Farm Credit provided lemonade (as well as a fruit and veggie game), and Sew Many Stitches 2 gave away slices of watermelon.
Jasper County Hospital let kids play with CPR dummies.
The Jasper County Public Library had reading and crafts, but the sand art in a bottle was more photogenic.
The Jasper County Fair Queen and Second Runner Up were there to pose for pictures. (Question from one of the little girls, "Can I have your crown?")
First Credit Union (I think) had a bean bag toss, and Little Cousin Jasper Festival had a fishpond. There was enough there to keep Betty and Irma busy for the full two hours of the market. They had a wonderful time.
