This forth of July, want to do something truly patriotic? Shop local! When you support small local owned business you help your community. You are giving employment to enterprising folks, and allowing them to have money to spend so they can do the same. Talk about economic stimulus! When you shop at big chains your money is going else where, and political voice goes with it - we vote with our dollar. Shopping at small businesses makes for a stronger community.
Come down to City Park this 4th, from 9AM to 1PM and visit the farmer's market and craft fair. Not only are you doing your civic duty, but it's some of the best, most delicious, freshest, most interesting shopping trip you've had in a while!
