Subject: OUT & ABOUT
I hope you have enjoyed the glorious weather this week. It’s very difficult to focus on indoor tasks when it’s so nice outside. Winter may finally be over!
With the increase in visitors, we are in need of your brochures in the chamber office. Please check with us to make sure we have plenty on hand. We’re happy to see folks shopping and dining around town. We have received positive comments on how friendly everyone is and how nice business owners are. Keep up the good work!
Have fun…..out & about!
