CALUMET -- The Main Street Calumet Market is ready with its June riddle. See if you can find the key that makes this accurate statement make sense:
Every lady in this land
Has twenty nails, upon each hand
Five, and twenty on hands and feet:
All this is true, without deceit.
The first 3 children 12 or under, accompanied by a parent or guardian, who give the correct answer to the Main Street Calumet Market manager on Saturday, June 9, 2012, will win a prize. Parental help is encouraged. The market, located at 200 Fifth St. on the corner of Fifth and Portland Streets in downtown Calumet, Michigan, features seasonal produce, crafts by area artisans and a variety of products by local businesses. It is held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the first Friday of each month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
