Why we think Jan Garber is a Louisburg Jewel:

Jan has taken a passion and created a community Jewel, from scratch, with his “Glory Days of Iron” event at Lewis-Young park. Yes, it is nostalgia for machinery, and it is a first rate event held right here in Louisburg on a weekend at the end of May (29-31).  Now that he knows the ropes, he has started yet another event, the “Garden Tractor Show and Pull” in Paola on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Check out www.micoantiquetractorassoc.com for more details on both shows.

You may not always recognize Jan, as he has been several costumed characters during the winter holidays. In fact, we know him best as “Jan the Elf.”

Thank you, Jan, for being part of our community, we are much better off with you around.
