The Lee’s Summit Historical Society plans to bring a weekly marketplace to downtown Lee’s Summit. Beginning on Saturday, Sept. 7, the parking lot of the Farmers Trust Bank, 301 S. Main, will be set up with booths providing a wide range of products. Mrs. May Howard, president of the fledging Lee’s Summit Historical Society, said her organization has four main objectives for their "Country Market." The first is to raise money for the society, which is only nine months old. Secondly, we hope the market will bring shoppers to the downtown area each week. The third and fourth reasons are the buyer and seller. By providing the place, we will be helping both sides.
