Recycling……….is coming

We have worked really hard, and are really excited to announce that both the City and County have approved a recycle drop off location for paper, cans, and clear and color glass.

Stanton County Foods is a huge partner in the recycle efforts of the community. The container location will be behind the store.  AND they accept plastic bags and #1 and #2 plastic milk, soda, and juice containers (no lids) inside!

It’s National Hat Day – 1/15/2018

January 15th is National Hat Day

Hats may be worn for safety and protection, for religious reasons, ceremonial reasons, warmth or fashion.  In the Middle Ages hats were an indicator of social status.  In the military hats may denote one’s nationality, branch of service, rank and/or regiment.  Structured hats for women began to be worn in the late 16th century.  The best quality hats were made in Milan, Italy in the 18th century.  In the mid-1920’s women started to replace bonnets with wide-brimmed hats, and even smaller hats that hugged their heads.

Hang onto your hat and celebrate in style on National Hat Day!
