This has been a challenging and stressful year for business. We too worry about the future but we can't stick our head in the sand either. If there is a way we can help our community rebound, it's to keep the ideas and energy flowing- those are a FREE way to give back! As soon as the shelter in place order went into place, we decided we could use some goodwill,
so we used a social media poll to gather input for a shop a local program. When folks could start moving about the area again, we left FREE shop local tags outside our door in the downtown area, encouraging by-passers to pick up one and share stories of ways they were supporting local.
Innovation always brings new opportunities and serving on non-profit boards & committees makes a difference for those that support us.
