As we head into the holiday season, I want to take a moment to encourage you to stay warm and snuggled in that bed on the day after Thanksgiving. Save your gas and spend your dollars locally. When you buy local, you support the businesses that in turn support our community. Think of how often we ask for donations from our business community for schools, churches, non-profit organizations, not to mention the well-loved community events that we couldn't pull off without their generous contributions. Check this week's edition of The Polk County Pulse for our ad that includes Chamber Members who will be open and offering savings on Black Friday.
We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving from all of our families to yours!
