Local Walmart awards grant

Local Walmart Store #4414 recently awarded the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree & Crafts Festival $2500 through its corporate Community Grants program. Steve Abell, Jr., store manager, assisted with the approval process. 

“We are so thankful to Walmart for the generous donation of $2500.  These funds are used to pay the Jamboree House Band, a five-member band,” said Kim Luton, president. The house band plays music for all cloggers, buck dancers and square dancers, over the two-day event.

The 52nd Annual Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree & Crafts Festival will be held June 30 – July 1, 2023. For more information, visit and follow both the Jamboree and Local Walmart on facebook.
