The countdown is on as next week, Finding Windom will be revealing our support local campaign titled "The little city that would."  We hope local businesses, residents and city officials take some time to attend our Finding Windom meeting on Wednesday, February 16th at 7pm at the BARC to learn more details about our campaign and our mission.

Included in the campaign is our version of the top 10 reasons it is important to support local.  To give you a taste, here is number 1:

Money spent local stays local. We could all use a little more cash these days, right? By staying local to do your business you simultaneously create more jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.  It feels nice to know where your hard earned money is going.
