Monday Is Carmi Zip Code Day

CARMI – This coming Monday, June 28, 2021, is Carmi’s Zip Code Day. It will be 6-28-21 in the 62821.

The Carmi Chamber of Commerce will be holding a fun contest on their Facebook page, and participants will have a chance to win Carmi Chamber Bucks! Chamber Bucks can be spent at any business in Carmi (merchant policy may vary). The contest will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, so tune to the Chamber’s Facebook page that morning for details.

The Chamber will also be taking a road trip around the 62821 on 6-28-21 and visiting some of our wonderful members and going live on Facebook to see how they are celebrating the day. The Zip Code Day sign will be place outside the chamber office, located at 225 E. Main St. in Carmi, from 2 p.m. until the following morning so the public can stop and take pictures to commemorate this once in lifetime day. Share your pictures on social media with the hashtag #62821on62821

Here are a few things going on in town that day. The White County Senior Citizen Center will be hosting a vendor fair and bingo from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in their parking lot located at Main and Walnut. Chamber member 618 Mobile Boutique will be among the vendors. The Taco Factory, located at 1678 Falcon Ave., is having Happy Hour all day! This means all drinks, any size, are $.99 all day long! And Wabash Christian Village wants to celebrate too! From 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., Tropical Sno will be in their parking lot serving free sno cones to the public!

The Chamber hopes everyone will stop in Carmi on this once in a lifetime day and take their own road trip around the 62821 on 6-28-21 and see what all of Carmi has to offer.
