Family Foods partners with MPL for moms and money

Midway Public Library's long-running Mother's Day Sale has gone uptown and turned into a party.

Teagan and Lincoln Simmonds helping their dad shop for plants at the Boundary GoGos sale in McMynn's parking lot with only one day left to go before Mother's Day.

The parking lot at McMynn’s Family Foods in Midway was hopping with live music, vendors and information displays as the store once again partnered with the Midway Public Library to celebrate Mother’s Day last weekend. Breakfast and lunch were available through the donation of supplies from McMynn’s and the willing and cheerful work of dedicated library volunteers. The Greenwood-based band Undercover was again providing live music. The grocery store offered hourly specials in the morning.

This was the second year the library’s Mother’s Day event has been held in the store parking lot. It was held for many years at the library but moved to the grocery site last year to help McMynn’s celebrate 100 years of business in the community.
