[October 29, 2019]  On Monday morning a triple ribbon cut was held at 602 Keokuk Street in Lincoln, celebrating the relocation of three local businesses into one new building. ME Realtors, HeadLines Salon and Serenity Now are all existing businesses.

On hand to celebrate the event was Kay Anderson, owner of Serenity Now; Shay Barger, Danielle Meister, Brett Robison and Liz Hays, owners of HeadLines Salon; Seth Goodman - owner, Diane Schriber - Managing Broker, Caroline McMath - former owner and all the realtors and staff of ME Realty. Also joining in the group was Don Peasley, Penny Thomas and Theresa Moore representing Logan County, Peggy Bateman, Bob Dunovsky, Beth Kavelman, Kathy Horn and Tracy Welch representing the city. Also on hand was Jeff Horn, Kathie Williams of Small Town Creations, and Karen Hargis, Roy Logan and Nila Smith of Lincoln Daily News.

For the ribbon cutting ceremony, Carolyn McMath was included up front and center as a former owner of ME Realty and the person who owned the business the longest to date.

As everyone gathered outside the ME Realty end of the building, owners were given the opportunity to speak. First up was Anderson. Anderson said she wanted to thank everyone who came out to help the businesses celebrate. She also wanted to extend a thank you to all those who have supported her over the last several years in her business and said she was looking forward to a long lasting relationship in the community.

Next to speak was Liz Hays representing the owners of HeadLines Salon. Hayes noted that HeadLines has been in the community for six years, and that the owners are excited about their move and looking forward to the future.

Carolyn McMath spoke next saying she was excited to be included in the cut and very happy for Goodman and the ME Realtors and staff in their new location.

Goodman spoke then saying that “ME Realty has come a long way since 1983, so it has been in Logan County for a long time. It is an honor and privilege to own the agency, and I owe a lot to Carolyn for all she did to build the agency.”

Goodman went on to say that it had not been his intention to move the agency, but when the building came available it just all fell together. He thanked his staff for their support in the move.

Tracy Welch was called upon to speak on behalf of the city of Lincoln. He said that Lincoln and Logan County were blessed to have the three businesses. Welch noted that this was a return to his past because the building had been Graue Pharmacy, which was the first place where Welch worked.

McMath manned the scissors for ME Realty and was joined by Liz Hays and Kay Anderson. With the count down the three ladies did the honors of cutting the triple strand of red ribbon.

Everyone was then invited back inside to enjoy cake or another sweet treat and take a tour of the entire building.

For the ME realtors and staff it was time to get back to work, so several grabbed a quick snack then headed back to their offices.


The French doors between ME and HeadLines offered a pass through into the salon where the owners chatted with guests.

At the far end, Anderson was giving chair massages free for the event and a few people took advantage of that opportunity as well.

Congratulations to all three businesses on their move.
