* New Volunteer Opportunity
At our meeting July 26th, Kathy Weiss, Project Facilitator for The Town presented the key components of the Business Retention and Expansion (B R &E) Program which is aimed at building and improving relationships between The Town and the Local Business Community starting with the Tourism sector.    This program will assist The Town in analyzing it’s business community and addressing any immediate concerns, as well as identifying positive and negative attributes of the community as a place to do business. The outcome of the program is to respond to local business needs and promote job growth.
To complete this program, The Town is looking for Volunteers working in teams of two people to interview and record business surveys of local businesses. Kathy will conduct a training session for the volunteers, provide Interview tools and provide mileage reimbursement.
The timeline to complete this program is September 13th 2022 to February 3.2023 and will involve each team conducting one business interview per week for 20 weeks.  Kathy is looking for 4 Volunteers from the Rotary Club. We have two volunteers already so if this project is of interest to you, please contact Kathy directly at:
