SHOP SMALL SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25TH.  NEED A 'WOW'! PROMOTION!  NEED YOUR IDEAS!  E-mail and share your thoughts on how to get people downtown and into locally-owned businesses.  American Express sent 200 canvas shopping bags this year; Jeannie had a sample to show.  Judy made a motion to have the bags lettered with our logo; Jeannie seconded; approved.  
(Cost was $2.00 per bag last year.)  What is best way to get the bags OUT into the community?  We'll add coupon bags, what else?  Craft shows?  Should we do it ahead of Thanksgiving?  (Maybe coordinate promo w/Open House dates for Russell's & Golden Acorn, instead of waiting until after Thanksgiving?)  
Do we do a Raffle Basket?  Share your thoughts!
