Chamber’s Popcorn Days continuing this week

Activities for the Chamber of Commerce Popcorn Days are continuing this week.
Michelle Spady won the “Sound Corny?” baby picture ID contest. It was a challenging contest, as no one had all 22 matches correct. Spady matched 20 of 22 correctly to beat out seven other contestants. The correct matchups are listed with this story.
Staff at Mid-Plains Community College in Imperial awarded Spady $50 in Chamber Bucks Monday for winning the contest.
Each day this week on the morning KADL Call radio show, people are invited to answer a series of popcorn-related questions. KADL staff will take a maximum of five calls per question, with $10 in Chamber Bucks given to the caller with the correct answer or closest to it.
On Friday, more than 20 Chamber businesses are providing free popcorn to their customers.
Also this Friday, which is Halloween, businesses downtown and in the outlying business areas will be treating the trick-or-treaters after school.
Also trick-or-treaters on Friday are being invited to the Manor and Parkview/Heights and the Sunset Housing complex at 320 West 10th St.
First Bank & Trust at 348 Broadway is also hosting a Popcorn Days Contest of its own. People are invited in to guess the number of kernels on ears of corns. First place prize is tickets to the Nebraska-Minnesota football game with second place $50 in cash.
