Rotary learns about farmers market
Shannon Lehn, representing the Austintown Farmers Market, recently visited the Rotary Club of Austintown to explain her vision to expand and create a more family-friendly environment for the market’s Monday evening events. In addition to baked goods, fruits, vegetables, crafts and other vendors, she will include educational programs, music demonstrations and ways to showcase local organizations and nonprofits. The Austintown trustees and park staff will offer both outdoor and indoor space for events this summer. Above are Lehn, left, and Bruce Laraway, club president, with a book to be donated to the Austintown Elementary School Library in appreciation for Lehn’s presentation.
