SIDNEY — Compassionate Care of Shelby County (CCSC), the county’s free health and dental clinic, will close the alley beside its building at 124 N. Ohio Ave. from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Aug. 21 for Summerfest, there and in its parking lot.
Summerfest, a festival open to the public, will offer food, music and vendors of all kinds. T-Man’s BBQ will serve ribs and chicken, CCSC board members will serve Culver’s frozen custard and the CCSC Volunteer Bake Sale will feature Spot pies. Vendors can choose to donate some of their proceeds to CCSC, who will present a trophy at 7 p.m. to the vendor who reports the best sales count of the day.
Tours of the facility will be available. There will be a 50/50 drawing and raffles of prizes from Clancy’s, Hair Company, Ron & Nita’s, Furniture Express, Panache, Shelby Oaks, C&R Designs and more. Randi Marie Shank will give massages in the building.
Brian Mantor’s 2007 Chevy Silverado, Bully Crusher, will make an appearance. Mantor built it with friends to promote an anti-bullying agenda.
