Seymour Main Street is excited to introduce the Seymour Junior Main Street program. This past weekend is the first weekend that the Seymour High School students were set up with a storefront in the downtown Community Center. They were open from 10-2 and they sold necklaces, tree ornaments, plants, vinyl clings and more!
The students were in charge of running the store, coming up with a logo, designing a flyer, a radio ad, picking the items to sell, and tracking the items sold and money intake.
This is a collaboration between Seymour Main Street and Seymour High School to teach students what it is like to be a future business owner and to get them excited about the downtown and involved in our community.
We have another store day scheduled for December 2nd from 10am - 2pm so mark your calendars for this great event.
We are really excited about this collaboration and feel like the sky is the limit for the students and us!

This mural was done by Southern Indiana Center for Arts (SICA) artist Darnell Dukes. She painted the mural in black and white and then each item was numbered, then the public was able to sign up for a time to come and paint one item on the mural. Kids and adults from all over the community had a hand in creating this fun and whimsical piece of art in the downtown. Be sure to check it out when you are out shopping, it is on the backside of the Community Agency building in the downtown.
