Ribbon Cutting

Busy downtown . . . It was a welcome sight to the community and to the downtown business operators to once again see all the west side business square parking spaces filled during a Monday afternoon. The dedication ceremony and recognition of Jim and Cyndy Jorgenson took place at the new Gathering Grounds coffee shop (far left in photo). The coffee shop is not yet open, but should be in business early in October. Each of the other six store fronts are already occupied and in operation, those being: Boom Fitness, Kay Furniture, Kenmare Drug, Kenmare One Stop clothing, First District Health clinic, and Spin City Laundry and Tanning.
