We are taking the term "support local" and moving it from "words" to "action"!
Locally-owned businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy.
They bring character and uniqueness to the individual communities they serve.
This group is dedicated to highlighting all things local in our wonderful city!
We need to rally around our locally-owned and make sure they survive and thrive.
Do we want a city with only chain restaurants and big-box stores? NO!
This is the group for you if you want to support this "action" MOVEment!
