Documents are burned in front of the Kansas Country Store to celebrate the paying off of $15,000 worth of no interest loans. Pictured are Terri Hollis, a store employee; Sherry Brown, co-owner of the store; Don Brown, co-owner of the store; Wendy Scheidt, executive director of the Leavenworth Main Street Program; and Carol Russell, store employee.
The loans were secured through Leavenworth Main Street. The money was used to pay for signage at the downtown store, which expanded in 2008.
A total of more than $485,000 was invested in the renovations, according to Sherry Brown.
