Area residents wanting to learn about the newest products and services available for the home and garden can do so without leaving town by attending the annual Vandalia Chamber of Commerce Home & Garden Show.
The Saturday, March 12, event will be held at the Vandalia Junior High School gymnasium from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition to the chamber, the co-sponsors of the event are The Leader-Union and WKRV/WPMB.
As the name of the event implies, this year’s version of the show features an additional emphasis on lawn and garden products and services. So far, nearly 30 vendors have committed to participating in the show. Participating again as the food vendor for the show is Givens Meat Shop.
Booth spots are still available, and prospective exhibitors are encouraged to call the chamber office at 283-2728. Those 10-foot-by-10-foot booths are available for $250 for non-members and $175 for chamber members. Also available are half booths for $100, and table space for $75 for non-profit agencies. A limited number of booths with electricity are available.
Admission to the Home & Garden Show will be $2 on the day of the show. However, advance tickets are available for $1 from many chamber members or from the chamber office, which is located at 1408 N. Fifth St. The phone number is 283-2728.
