Memory Days sidewalk sales

April 30, 2014 — The editor:

For over 40 years many church, scout and service groups have held hot dog and bake sales and other fund raisers on the sidewalks of Grayson on Memory Days Parade Day. We have been most pleased to build the large crowd for these non-profit organizations and have never charged nor even invited voluntary payment to the Memory Days Committee to help defray our many expenses.

There is no reason for that long tradition which swells the crowds and creates festive atmosphere to end this year.

Bob Caummisar, Memory Days Coordinator has heard several rumors that no sidewalk sales or informational card tables will be allowed this year. That matter is and always has been between the owners of the property along Main Street and those who request to locate at a specific spot. The Coordinating Committee has no control or role in that decision. The committee does ask the vendors stay on the sidewalk, leaving space between their booths and Main Street for pedestrians to walk freely and not need walk into the street to get past the booths as was observed last year for the first time.

Robert L. Caummisar
