Help Local Military Personnel ...

As you probably remember, the BUILD group has been selling magnetic ribbons to raise money for phone calling cards so that our Louisville friends serving overseas would be able to call home and hear the voices of their families.

Maureen at the hardware store is concerned that many of the last addresses we had have changed, and she is afraid we'll miss someone. Please if you have a loved one in the military please contact Maureen to verify your address.


Santa Alert!!!
Our latest information is that Santa will be on Main Street from 11-1:00, and that Blake's Floral will be hosting a Children's Shopping Day from 12-3:00, where parents can rest their weary bodies in the Soda fountain while their children shop for mom and dad and grandparents too.


The children's Gifts will be wrapped at no extra cost!


Help the Homeless Birds
Remember that everybody loves Bird Houses, especially Grand Ma, and Aunt Betty from Topeka. She is visiting this year, and bringing her fruitcake!!

Louisville has some of the very best birdhouses anywhere!! Click HERE

A birdhouse is a gift that lasts and lasts for years and will bring smiles to everybody including the birds. (sometimes it is hard to tell) So find the perfect bird house and make somebodies Christmas Merry!

Pictures with Santa!!


Our Louisville Jaycees were able to talk Santa Claus into leaving his very busy workshop and going straight to Main Street Louisville to take part in a special photo session with Louisville's Good Kids! Kids can tell the kindly old elf what they are hoping to find under the tree, and then tell Santa how good they have been all year! The Jaycees will be accepting voluntary donations for the photgraphy.

Main street will be filled with the wonderful sound of Carolers singing traditional Christmas songs to help our hearts to be Merry as they stroll past our many Main Street merchants.

B-U-I-L-D
First it needs to recognized that the organization Louisville BUILD was the brain child of our hard working energetic Lynn Berner Smith back when the Main Street project was causing some friction between Main Street businesses. It was critical to get folks back pulling the wagon the same direction and Lynn offered an organization of United Business Owners as a solution.
The success of this organization has brought many important improvements, and now the question is; what are the real goals and objectives for this group of dedicated business owners? I know one goal without thinking very hard, and that is to get a much broader involvement from local business owners. The next meeting of BUILD is 7:30am on Voting Day 11/2 at the City Offices. If you are a local business owner, please take time to attend and join us in this good work!
Please Email BUILD with your suggestions as to the Priorities and Goals for the Organization to continue to grow a strong Louisville Economy. Click HERE

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!

Okay, The Legend of the Cat! (That is Me!)
Kids from far and near, have traveled to Louisville for one purpose, and one purpose only.

Here at Maureen and Larry's Mainstreet hardware store, there is something for everyone, and wonders that you just can't imagine. They have paint of every color, a charming paint shaker, loads of gadgets and wire nuts. They have a fresh supply of Mole-No-More just waiting to meet you.

But, don't be fooled.. The real reason that people journey to Main Street Louisville, and open our doors is me.

For FREE you can visit the hardware store and request to pet The Cat!
(subject to Cat mood and availability)
There is even a sign on the door, to let folks know, that this is the place!

The thrill that folks get, from a couple of quick pats on my head is tremendous, and you can see them whistling to themselves as the continue on their merry way. Many never wash that hand again.

I know it's the popularity of Petting the Hardware Cat that is the driving element behind Louisville's growth and popularity. Well, it is a lonely job being an ICON but it has to be done.

Having fun, and Petting the CAT south of the river....
