ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM THE BOARD

  • The Paducah Cigar Company, 217 Broadway, proposed that if PAPA artists wished to display paintings depicting cigars at their store, they would do so and offer them for sale. NOTE: Personal experience from one of us indicates that you will need to talk with the owner as the workers don't seem to know about this.
