One of the main reasons I decided to run for an HBTS BOD position was to find ways to help build our sense of community. I quickly discovered that this is no easy task in such a large community with varying opinions and desires. However, I will continue to try new ways to bring neighbors together, which is why I am excited to tell you about the HBTS Business Expo with Member Only Vendors! On Saturday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m, to 2 p.m. we will be hosting a Members Only Business Expo. The event is for ALL members! Please stop by to meet your neighbors, learn about their businesses, enjoy refreshments and win prizes. The purpose of the Expo is to bring our community together and provide opportunities for neighbors to network and support each other. The event is for informational purposes only, so there is no selling of products or services at the event. Members that own businesses or build clientele in our area are welcome to participate in this free event to showcase your products or services. We have limited space so we encourage everyone to sign up NOW. Childcare will also be provided for vendors. This is an event that I have been wanting to do for some time, and I am thrilled to have the support of our GM, April, and our staff. Carrie is your event contact, and she is working hard to make this a great event for all. Vendors should contact Carrie at 939-1693 ext. 7 for more information and to sign up. I hope to see many of you at the Expo.
