Admission fee

February 4, 2010


To the editor:

My wife and I went to the Lawrence Home Show last Friday evening and arrived just as the wind was starting to swirl the snow around us. After we found a parking place and went inside we were surprised to find a sign that said “Admittance $5.” Well, I was lucky in that I had exactly $10 in my wallet. If I had anything less, we would have made the trip for nothing. When we returned home I looked back through the papers at the advertisements about the home show and nowhere does it indicate an admission fee. I am not upset about the $10, but I feel the organizers should have indicated that there would be a fee for admission.

Apparently the organizers were not very good at organizing. As for "admission fee". some of the vendors should have promoted the event and had prospective attendees stop by their business and pick up a FREE admission ticket. I bet the vendors had to pay something to promote their business.

With all of the education in Lawrence, things just continue to go amuck.

Kinda sucks to spend $10.00 to see folks who are going to charge you to fix up your home. Should be free.
