Southside Boosters, Old Tyme Power hosting ice cream social

An ice cream social and fundraiser sponsored by The Southside Booster Club and The Old Tyme Power Club is bringing live country music, tractor displays and a flea market to Rainbow Park this Saturday. ​

The social is from 1 to 5 p.m. this Saturday at Rainbow Park and is a free-will offering.

The big event of the evening will be live country music.

“We’re very excited because were having a musician up from Branson,” said Darlene Loudon, Southside Booster Club president.

Artists like Vance Monday, Max Smith, Rick Titus, Ricky Cross and Bob Cottrell will be performing.

The flea market will consist of a variety of stands and anyone can set up a table for $5.

The Southside Booster Club and Old Tyme Power Club have organized an ice cream social in hopes of fundraising money toward projects in Rainbow Park and club activities.

The Southside Booster club was created in the late ‘30s by businessmen who wanted to help the community.

Since then, the club had died down but was reignited by Loudon.

“We brought up the club without one penny,” said Loudon.

The club fundraised by creating a cookbook called, “A Cook Book of Down Home Cooking,” by family and friends of Rainbow Park.

Some of the club’s projects were building a shelter house and putting a new roof on the maintenence building.

“It’s a part of our history,” said Loudon. “It’s been here for over 100 years.”
