We enjoy offering anniversary kudos to local businesses as space here permits. We hope it serves as a reminder to all about how the business owners support this community in so many ways and with us supporting them as much as possible it helps create the hometown values and spirit that we all cherish and, perhaps, occasionally take for granted.

Remember: Think local first!
