Flock to Flora for Trade Day September 7

Flora 2Flora is a town that gets preservation.  From the lovely main street to the historic depot and Chip Estes’ super cool cotton gin, the people of Flora are committed to saving what makes their place so special.  On Saturday, September 7, visitors will flock to Flora for Flora Trade Day and 4th Annual Car Show from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, hosted by the Flora Area Historical Society. Sponsors include Hometown Hardware, McGraw Gotta-Go, GEM Publications, Flora Area Chamber of Commerce, Runnels Insurance and Madison County Business League. Money raised will go to the restoration of the Town’s 1914 water tower. Admission is free, and activities include art/craft vendors, local entertainment, kids zone, local food and a car show with awards.  Can’t make it but want to support the restoration of the water tower?  Pop your check in the mail today to:

  1. Yay for Flora! A great example of what a small town can do. It makes Edwards down the road look all the more sad.
