“On the Road Again”

To borrow a line from the song, we are “On the Road Again” meeting small businesses in rural communities in Eastern Ontario. They are seeing the effects of drought, the cut back in the government employment and a general malaise from a slow economy.

They need something to inject some interest, excitement and enthusiasm into the local communities. One thing we can do is use our dollars to support them. Consider shopping and enjoying leisure activities in your rural area. Attend the local country fair, buy at the farmer’s market, support small business, we can make a difference. Small business is the backbone of the community.
