On Thursday, August 22, 2019 the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce and Lindsey Wilson College will host the 13th annual Wares Fair in the Holloway Health and Wellness Center from 6:00-8:00pmCT. Each participating business will be provided "booth" space approximately l0' x 10' with a table and 2 chairs. This is an opportunity for area businesses to show the students, faculty, and staff members at the College what goods and services are available here in our community. There is no charge for Chamber members to set up a booth. The only real expense is to donate a door prize with a retail value of at least $25. However, there is a $50 fee for non-Chamber members as well as the door prize.
 
Each year this event attracts 400-500 students, faculty, and staff members. The door prizes are given away all evening with the grand prizes drawn at the end of the Wares Fair.  Also, the students will select the “Favorite Booth” with that business winning 2 day passes to Holloway Health & Wellness Center.
 
You will be able to set up your display on the day of the event from 3:00-5:30pm. Students will be available to help carry boxes, etc. that you bring with you. While you are not permitted to sell anything during the evening you are allowed to give out information about your business and any other items such as pens, pencils, or trinkets that help promote your business.
 
The money spent in this community by students benefit all businesses even if you don't get a lot of Lindsey Wilson student traffic. The dollars they spend here are used by employees of those businesses to buy the goods and services they need. It keeps the dollars circulating locally which is good for the economy of Adair County.
 
We hope you will join us in welcoming the Lindsey Wilson campus community to Columbia and Adair County.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ellen Zornes

Originally commissioned and produced by the Dallas Children's Theatre, this full-length play is a faithful adaptation of the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Young Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies in Victorian London. There the young, beloved heiress shines as the star pupil - until the death of her wealthy father completely reverses her fortune. The greedy headmistresses allow Sara to become a servant at the academy and live in a cold, miserable attic room. Sara uses her vivid imagination to overcome adversity and even bring happiness to those around her. Other characters include her faithful school friend, a scullery maid, and a lascar from India, who also doubles as the narrator.?
