Annual Lions toy show planned

JEWELL – The Jewell Lions Club will host its 33rd annual Central Iowa Toy Show on March 30.

Exhibitors from Iowa and throughout the Midwest annually attend this show.

People may buy, trade, sell or just look at the large variety of farm toys and collectibles.

Agricultural displays, a model railroad, hand crafted items, works by a local artist, NASCAR racing items, cast iron and die-cast farm toys, Hot Wheels cars, Beanie Babies, trains, and dolls complement the surroundings.

Several 1/64th scale diorama displays depicting past, present, and future-farming methods will highlight the show.

Doors will be open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the South Hamilton High School gymnasium, Jewell.

Admission is $5, with high school and younger youngsters admitted free.

Net proceeds from the event help the Lions Club fund many local, state and international projects. Lunch, complete with homemade pie, will be served all day.
