Congratulations to our July winners of the Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC Patronization Program drawing, Courtney Rierson and Stephanie Thurman. Their purchases at Neighbors Cafe and Smoky Valley Nursery made them big winners!

Every time an SJHL staff member makes a purchase with one of our clients, they are entered into a monthly drawing where two lucky staff members win a fabulous prize. This program encourages our staff to do business with our clients and thank them for choosing us.

Neighbors Cafe has been a staple of Main Street since November 1997. As their website puts it, "Neighbors Cafe is operated like one of those forgotten little diners of yesteryear." Co-owner Shelly Wiggins said, "Everybody here works really hard at this to make good food and have fun." You can get some great food Tuesday through Saturday; 6:05 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Neighbors Cafe is located at 204 S. Main St. (corner of Main and Elizabeth) in McPherson and you can find them online at

Smoky Valley Nursery is the perfect place for those with or without a green thumb. They have got everything you need in order to lay flag stone for a walk way or start a garden. Owner, Jeff Chambers, states, "We are a full-service nursery and can do your projects from start to finish." The Nursery specializes in trees and has over 30,000 trees and shrubs. Quick tip: Fall is the best season to plant trees! You can stop by Monday through Saturday; 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 600 W. Northview (between Main and Old U.S. 81) in McPherson and online at
