May Cruise Night in Blair

If you can drive it, you probably could find it on the streets in downtown Blair on Cruise Night in May.  Another cruise night is planned for July 4 before the fireworks show.

The event, organized by Blair resident Matt Saunders, drew hundreds of cars — both classic and modern — that cruised along Washington Street to South Highway 30 and the roundabout before looping back on the 5.3-mile stretch of road.

 

 

Clearing the shelves to support Blair Bakery owners

The Blair Bakery is usually busy on Saturday morning, but nothing like November 23, when cars began arriving before 4:30 and customers lining the sidewalks waiting for Connie Custard to open up so they could buy out the donuts and cookies to allow  Connie to spend time with her husband Jim.
Jim, a Marine veteran has faced numerous health issues and is in need of constant care.  Many who waited in line and crowded overpaid, asked for no change, or just filled the tip jar.

“This is a good community. I love Blair, Connie told Enterprise Media managing editor Leeanna Ellis, “I’ve been here all my life and it’s one of the best.  It doesn’t matter, when somebody needs it, they’re out to help.”
