Revitalizing a Tradition

Last night in West Plains saw a revitalization of an old tradition – the First Friday Stroll. Merchants on the square were open until eight PM, there was a choice of three live musical groups to listen to, the open jam session in front of the music store kicked it up and folks were out in droves on this fine Friday evening to shop, socialize and stroll.
