Lamarlins Host State Swim Meet August 4-6


Lamar Pool


The Lamarlins Swim Team is hosting approximately 350 competitors for the Scottie Aschermann Seasonal State Swim Meet, August 4th thru the 6th.  Several activities have been planned for the busy weekend including live entertainment on Friday, August 4th at the Pocket Park, downtown Lamar.  Local talent, Rhett Uhland will perform and a small vendor fair has been planned for the evening.

Local businesses have been asked to consider remaining open later that evening, perhaps until 8pm, to accommodate all the families that will be in the area for the weekend swim meet, as well as the entertainment. The area will be busy as a class reunion group is also using the Shore Arts Center as their host site.  Contact Heather Flint at 940-3835, Ashley Majoy at 688-1764 or Jodell Rogers at 940-0284 more information regarding the downtown event and the Lamarlin’s Swim Meet.

The Lamar City Council approved overnight camping in Willow Creek Park earlier this month for the competitors and their families.
