Longtime downtown Lee’s Summit supporter Howard McCracken, now 92, was out and about at Downtown Days June 7. McCracken owns property in downtown near Third and Green streets, the area where his furniture store was located for many years. Many remember McCracken as Santa Claus during the holidays and as the first president of the board of directors when Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street was founded in 1989.
