Small businesses are a major contributor to the strength of our local economy. Literally, small businesses are the backbone of our local community and we appreciate your investment and hard work to make our community a great place to live and work.
According to the 2010 Census, 99.7% of U.S. employer firms are small businesses. Almost half of the nation's private sector workforce is employed by small business, there is nothing small about these facts.
That is why we recognize all the small businesses in our community and thank you for supporting the community we mutually serve and invest in.
Improving the quality of life in communities where we live and do business is a goal we share. The stronger we can help our community become, the more revenue that is available for your business, and better off we all are.
We invite you to partner with us to strengthen and improve the quality of life for our community members. Visit our donation page to give today or become a corporate sponsor and place an advertisement on our website.
