Home and Leisure Show proves private enterprise alive and well

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Private enterprise is alive and well in Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas.

Need proof?

Look no farther than the Army Reserve Training Center on Airport Road in McCook this weekend, when the McCook Area Chamber of Commerce puts on the 21st annual Home & Leisure Show.

Does your home need some sprucing up? Vendors have great ideas for new siding, windows, roofing, window treatments, kitchens, basement and structural repairs and many other products and services. Is it time to relax in a new spa or sleep better, thanks to a new home safety system? How about a complete, new home?

How about your lawn and garden? Nothing will make spring seem closer than checking out a new mower or planning other outdoor improvements.

But it's not all about your house and yard -- check out Internet services, clothes and crafts, cosmetics, electronics, wireless communications and many other products.

And don't forget the food, both on sale to take home and to consume while taking in the show.

Plus, you might win one of two $250 certificates to spend with any of the home show vendors.

Admission is $2 for adults, children 12 and under free with a paid adult. The show is open 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
