There once was a girl named claire
Who took pride in boasting about her hair So instead of having nights
where the comb and brush would fight
She stocked up her home with hair care
There once was an old bricken church
whose patrons were taken with thirst
they asked for some ‘shine and said it was fine
tho the old pastor’s stomach would lurch!
A worldly woman once visited the town of Winchester, What she saw there did impress her, So she opened a store, filled it with antiques and uniques galore,
And now the worldly woman travels no more.
There was a wee bar in Winchester
Who invited all to enter
They’ll fill your ale pail with smile and haste
And thank St. Patrick for the town’s wonderful taste!
The material came from an ancestor
And an idea started to fester
A PYOP popped up
Come in to paint a cup
Right here in Downtown Winchester
A dapper man sits on Main Street
A happier soul you will never meet
You must have seen him holding court
With passer-by of ever sort
Happily greeting you from his seat
Muncie drove, along the old brick road
The beer he drinks, not nearly that old
On a bright sunny day,
Sit on the deck, Muncie would say
For what’s there now is named for that road!
There is a store by the huge gold dome
Where you can find products for house and for home
Things for food, babies, ladies and men
You’ll want to come back again and again
When you’re downtown and needing some sass
this is one shop you won’t want to pass
You’ll snag a cool shirt
That’ll make people smirk
And makes you look like a fine lass!
Match the limericks to these downtown businesses. Show a listed shopkeeper their match to get a gold coin raffle entry for our St. Patrick’s gift basket–filled with treasures from participating businesses.
