Scammon celebrates new event center

Folks Check Out The Grand Opening Of The Scammon Event Center

SCAMMON, Ks. – Scammon, Kansas is a town with around 600 residents and quite of few of them could be found at the hottest Friday night ticket in town.

A building in the heart of downtown was originally a restaurant, but after going dormant for 5 years, it’s now up and running as the town’s new event center thanks to owner Jeff Sandness.

“Well, I’ve always liked Scammon. I think it’s a special little town in the area as little towns go,” said Sandness.

Attendees got to enjoy food from Chicken Annie’s and a Scammon favorite Josie’s while also enjoying drink specials and live music. Sandness says that’s just a taste of what’s to come.

“We’ve already booked some weddings for this summer. We have a pancake feed planned. We have a brunch planned and look to do quite a bit of live music,” said Sandness.

And that’s music to the ears of many Scammon and other nearby residents who have something new to do in their own backyards.

“I live four blocks away. I can walk down here because it’s close. We don’t have to go out of town, so I’m really going to enjoy it,” said Scammon resident Dianna Groves.
