Junk Jaunt Contributions

Junk Jaunt contributionsThis year Junk Jaunt took a new approach utilizing the benefit of the event to generate funding in  Cairo.  The Village rented spaces this year at the North Ball Field, Christ Lutheran Church and the Cairo Community Center.  Registration fees from those locations generated donations to the Cairo Ball Association for $1,250, Christ Lutheran Church for $525 and the Cairo Community Center for $1,235.

Mayor, Bill Heger presented the Junk Jaunt contribution check to Clint Boersen, Vice President of the Cairo Ball Association on Monday.  Clint said that this contribution will go along way to continuing the improvements of the ball fields.  Our ball fields are an excellent source of entertainment for our youth and revenue for our area businesses.

The community survey conducted in 2012 listed development of a community grocery store a priority. Over the last few months community members have been meeting, touring comparable grocery stores and discussing the feasibility of opening a new grocery store. The Village of Cairo has dedicated the property directly East of the Village office as a location for the possible development of a Grocery Store.

The Mayor’s Steering committee will be meeting with Jim Crandall, Cooperative Business Development Specialist from UNL, on October 28th at 5:30 at the Fire Hall to build an action plan for exploring the development of a community grocery store.
