Stroll the Square: Bigger and Better Than Ever!
Live music, ice cream, and fellowship as Randolph County turned out last night for our monthly Stroll the Square event. With beautiful weather to help, we had the biggest crowd since the stroll was conceived by James and Mandy Tinker at Black River Beads and Pottery last fall.
Almost every business in downtown Pocahontas was open from 6 to 8 p.m. as people enjoyed mingled in a wonderful spirit of community. I spent most of the evening helping with the first opening of Carroll’s Variety Store on Marr Street across from the still-under-construction Lesmeister Guesthouse. We had a steady stream of visitors last night. The store was packed at times as people came to see what’s new in Pocahontas!
