Art in the Parking Lot adds Unique Experience

Check out the truly talented people we have in Shell Knob

“Art in the Parking Lot” is a Rare Gem of an Idea and Shell Knob Residents Respond

View of Mike Brown’s awesome woodcarving items in his tent. Visitors take a seat and enjoy the view. Mike is standing in the white shirt.

The cool weather made the displays easy to peruse and shop. The Red Barn seemed especially well-suited for this event.  There was a room inside for hanging larger art pieces and sculpture.  The Red Barn allowed potential customers to view the artworks and shop the delightful store contents. Their kitchen was preparing sandwiches, soups, and  ice cream sundaes for those who wanted to spend a little extra time shopping.

More News from the Corps of Engineers

CORPS ADVISES RESIDENTS THAT PERMISSION IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO ANY BURNING ON PUBLIC LANDS

BRANSON, Mo. – Army Corps of Engineers officials remind those who would like to help clean up and burn debris around the shoreline left by flooding at Table Rock Lake that they must first contact the duty ranger for permit and instructions before burning anything on public land.  After obtaining the one time permit, residents may pile driftwood on the shoreline on public land adjacent to their property or dock and burn it.  Only loose, downed driftwood may be burned.  No standing vegetation should be cut and burned.  Heavy equipment is not allowed (i.e. bobcat, backhoe, tractor, etc.) on public land.  Also, prior to burning, your local fire department must be notified.

Burning on public land without permission is a violation of Title 36 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.  Title 36 outlines “Rules and Regulations Governing Public Use of Corps of Engineers Water Resources Development Projects” and helps protect the valuable natural resources on this public property.  

To receive a permit application contact the duty ranger at 501-340-1935, between 8am and 4pm, Monday through Friday or email dutyroom.tablerock@usace.army.mil.  Permits will be available until Nov. 30.
