Children’s artwork is on display at shops in Downtown Minden. The Minden Main Street board is holding an art contest, and four winners will each be given a $25 gift certificate to Bobby’s Hobbies. Categories are divided into four age groups, preschool and kindergarten, first and second, third and fourth and fifth and sixth. Winners will be chosen by most votes received from now until Saturday at 5 p.m. at City Art Works. To vote, visit Her’s Bridal, Vintage Affair, La French Gypsy and City Art Works.
“This is a great way to support our young people,” Terry Gardener, board president said. “Our downtown is very active and we want to ensure it is vibrant for future generations.”
In addition to the art contest, the board is also raising funds to repair two of Minden’s gazebos.
Raffle tickets for a $500 Visa gift card are also being distributed for $5 a piece or five tickets for $20. Tickets can be purchased at Minden City Hall, TG Garden and Gifts, or from any Main Street Board Member.
