A Note From Your Chamber Director...

Father's Day
Dad called, and you are going to be in big trouble, unless you Shop Local for Father's Day!  According to the NRF (National Retail Federation), Father's Day spending is set to hit a record $16 billion this year; up from $15.3 billion in 2018. Over three quarters of Americans plan to celebrate Father's Day this Sunday, spending an average of $138.97. If you are among this statistic, I remind you to keep your spending dollars local.

The majority of that $16 billion will be spent on special outings, and there are plenty of outing activities you can do locally with dad. Consider a day of kayaking, biking or golfing with dad. If dad likes music, it is summer concert season with plenty of low cost and even free music venues throughout our communities. An evening at the Escape Room will keep dad on his toes, followed by a relaxing dinner at a local restaurant. Consider a trip to one of our local wineries, spirit retailers or breweries for a refreshing beverage or two with dad. There are so many local options for a special outing with dad, and this is just a small sample of how you can Keep It Local for Father’s Day, and stay on dad’s good side!

Wishing all of our TRC dads, a Happy Father's Day! 

Always Working for You, 
Gina C. Lynn
Executive Director
