I strongly believe in supporting your local community, local business owners, and local farmers. Gruene, Texas is one of my small communities with downtown being just 5 minutes from my house. It is a small Historic town that has come back to life. It is beautiful year round with seasonal flowers, a gorgeous winding river, and lots of welcomed visitors. We try to stay local as much as possible when dining out and when I shop at boutiques. I hope you do the same in your community.
Here are some local restaurant Lenten Specials.
Keeping local is a sure way to invest back into your community. It helps increase jobs and wages, and builds a stronger tax base which can benefit municipal services. Staying local also inspires local artisans and entrepreneurs to offer unique products and services. By switching a small percent of your spending dollars from national to local, it vastly increases a community's income. Go out and build local character and prosperity in your neighborhood. It is also a great way to mingle with friends and neighbors; and your kids will grow to care for their community.
