Minneapolis Area Chamber of Commerce says
I am Sharon Foust, the new Executive Director of the Minneapolis Area Chamber of Commerce, in the other Minneapolis, in KS. We sponsor a City-Wide Garage Sale each September on the Saturday after Labor Day. We are a small town of 2000. We have 20 sales that we will be advertising for our sale hosts on Saturday. A nice amount with good variety of things.
Becky McCray says
Welcome, Sharon! Twenty sales is a lot for a town of 2,000. I hope you have great turn out!
Karen S. Kimbrel says
I am from Colquitt, GA (pop. 2000) 6000 in Miller Co. In the early 90’s we were dying now we are thriving. In 1992 we launched a storytelling play called Swamp Gravy – Georgia’s Folk Life Play. I was a founding member. Since that time we have had $27 M of private investment in our town and we have a $7M economic impact from tourism. We have a conference every year the last Thur, Fri, Sat and Sun in Jan. Building Creative Communities. The arts can rebuild a community – we have consultants that can help you. Email me for more information. Swamp Gravy, will be 26 years old in October 2018. Come witness the magic of a community working together. We’ve all got a Story to Tell!
Becky McCray says
Karen, that is such a great success. Starting with just a story and people, you’ve created something terrific!
