Shell Knob Events for the last weekend in June and the FOURTH!

One of my favorite places to shop in Shell Knob is Treasures, Then and Now. It has changed hands twice since its inception but its’ core philosophy of selling quality new and used items remains the same. They have increased the policy of selling home made items and are encouraging baked foods such as cookies. The selection is wide and the goodness is baked right inside.They have increased the number of Customer Appreciation Days again. The next one is Saturday, June 30th from 10 am to 2 pm. Tom Koob, author of the book, Buried by Table Rock Lake, will be there signing books 11 am til 1 pm. Refreshments will be provided by the Painted Buffalo Cafe. There will be markdowns for this special event. A big thank you to Tom Koob and Theresa Cline, The Painted Buffalo for contributing to his event. There will be several other Plaza stores celebrating the July holiday.

For the Fisherman and Party Pals, Pro Choice and Jug N Plug have really upped their level of supplies for both.  Worms, crayfish and a dozen or so baits were seen being brought in for customers.  In addition, those who are thirsty  should shop the new shipments of wines, beer and everything else that wets your palate. They have a wide abundance of the BEST!   Expect treats and samples at both places.


“2018 Platinum level Business Partner of Central Crossing Senior Center”

Cong Dang, owner of Plaza Pharmacy, Shell Knob and Sater Health Mart Pharmacy, Cassville, was presented a plaque recognizing Plaza Pharmacy as a “2018 Platinum level Business Partner of Central Crossing Senior Center” (CCSC), located in Shell Knob.  Platinum Sponsorship is the highest monetary level of support in the Business Partner program.  In presentation of the award Cong stated, “I have been very blessed here and I very much love giving back to the community”.  In addition to this contribution, Plaza Pharmacy has recently sponsored lunch for the entire Senior Center congregation.  Through Cong and Plaza Pharmacy’s generous ongoing support of CCSC, area seniors have and will continue to benefit greatly.  Of course, Plaza Pharmacy has in turn, blessed those of us needing pharmaceutical prescriptions and the large assortment of goods and medical supplies offered there.  On behalf of CCSC and area seniors, a huge thank you goes out to Cong, Hoang and the entire staff of Plaza Pharmacy!

Community Garden a hit with Public at Garage Sale

The rain cooled off the heat in Shell Knob but no one received much of it. Seventies are better than 90’s. This last weekend toasted every one that was on the lake. The garage/plant sale at the Methodist Church was a success with over 200 people attending. God bless them all. Our young healthy plants found good homes. We answered a lot of questions with regard to the purpose of having a Community Garden and were encouraged by those supportive of feeding our community. We are looking for more volunteers that enjoy working out of doors and sharing fellowship of others.Call the church for additional information.


Church enters your life through Gardening

Community Garden – He Walks and Talks With Me written by Terri Strack

Modern life is full of many wonders. Technological advances have made it possible for individuals to stay in touch with family and friends like never before. We can even ‘video chat’ with loved ones over great distances. I remember as a child seeing these technologies in movies and wondering if I would ever be able to do that. Now we can! Amazing!

As fantastic as these man made inventions are, and as useful as they indeed can be, they ultimately distance us from the wonders of God’s holy creation around us. In fact, while connecting us through distance technologically, they can ultimately isolate us from our friends and family, limiting the intimacy we were meant to have with one another through fellowship and communion.

Welcome to the Community Garden! Leave behind the stress and burdens of modern life and step into the glory of God’s wondrous creation! Working in the garden, you can literally spend hours without knowing time has passed. You become lost in earth, water, sun; planting and reaping cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, strawberries, peppers, cabbage, squash and more! Learn from one another new techniques, share tips and teach children the skill needed to keep this fading skill alive for the future! Feel an absolute peace, surrounded by the very presence of Jesus and filled with the serenity of the Holy Spirit. Then there are hugs and conversations. Actual people meeting and speaking! Working in the sun, walking with the Son! Praise God!

The Garden gives back to the community by supplying fresh vegetables for the food pantry and providing bed space for those residents who would like to garden, but lack the space to do so. Volunteers are open heartedly welcome to come and participate in the garden in whatever capacity possible, or just to visit, watch, meditate.

Kittens need Homes

 the Haven of the Ozarks Pets of the Week are kittens!  We  currently have a beautiful selection of friendly, happy babies who need to find their forever homes.  There are males and females of nearly every color.  They’re spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, wormed,and kept on flea medication before they go home.  The adoption fee of $75 is far less than the cost of their vet work.  It’s kitten season and there are so many babies in need of help.  We hope to get these cuties adopted quickly so we can bring in the next group in need of homes.  And please spay/neuter your own kitties to help cut down on the cat overpopulation problem!  We’d love to have you visit us 9-4 any day of the week or call 417-835-3647 for more information on adopting a new family member.

Memorial Day Merchants Review for Shell Knob plus Reading is for Leaders

So far I have made it through 5 businesses on the Plaza and the news has been VERY good.  Traffic was lively, comments overheard over the weekend were like;” I didn’t know Shell Knob had such nice stuff, etc.  I have been looking for one of these for two years and here it is. . .    This Harter’s is awesome, the people are so nice.”  So all of that is a good start on the summer. The new season’s SHELL KNOB T-Shirts are in at several stores and they are a knockout RED! The Chamber is getting us ready for the big mid-summer event, the FOURTH OF JULY. 

Last week PBS aired a three hour show on what to read this summer.  All with critiques of the authors, with pictures, and copies of their novels.  There was a list of 100 books.  Our hard working Library girls have located 30 of these for a start.  The complete list is on the center reading table. Or you can find it on the internet site. As these go out to be read the next 70 will be brought in.  By joining the Summer Reading program, “Libraries Rock” you can add these great novels to your personal enlightenment.  “REMEMBER LEADERS ARE LEADERS”, after you finish reading them;  THERE IS A PRIZE FOR THE PERSON WHO READS THE MOST BOOKS! 

Come in, sign up, and you may take home a new KINDLE by the end of summer.
