Shenandoah puts on patriotic best for 20th anniversary Memorial Day Festival and Parade

SHENANDOAH — As it does each year at this time, the Town of Shenandoah will put on its most patriotic face for the thousands expected to turn out for the 20th Anniversary Memorial Day Festival & Parade. A classic car Cruz In on First Street at 6 p.m. Friday serves to kick off red-white-and-blue weekend festivities, which include a memorial ceremony at VFW Avis O. Comer Post 8613, car and truck, tractor and motorcycle shows, and, of course, the parade at 3 p.m. Saturday. Councilman Dave Hinkle, who is co-chair along with Nancy Karnes of the Memorial Day festivities, expected the final parade-entry tally to top 100. Add to that, the car show and all the other events scheduled for the weekend, and, Hinkle said with a chuckle, between participation and attendance, "we'll have more people than we have in the town."

Future of Elkton’s old town hall remains cloudy

ELKTON — Town staff might not return to the former Civil War hospital most recently used as Elkton’s Town Hall. Mayor Wayne Printz and Troy Shifflett, the town’s public works director, said at last Monday night’s Town Council meeting that the building at 173 W. Spotswood Ave. is in very poor condition. An effort is being made to rid the structure of asbestos and mold. The town moved its operations to the Elkton Area Community Center nine months ago after the first floor of the structure flooded.
