SBO Meeting Minutes - Aug. 2, 2016


SHOP BELLEVUE OHIO met on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, at 7 p.m. at Gilbert's Place.  
Present:  LeRose Meadows, Chairman,  Tanhan Hicks, Jeannie gore, Janell Davenport, Judy Miller, Keith Jesse, Jennifer Mazzaro, Nick Mazzaro, Chris Beamer.

LeRose introduced Chris Beamer, from Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum.  
Chris spoke about the NKP Railroad Historical Society Convention, meeting in Bellevue on October 15th.  Chris asked Shop Bellevue Ohio to assist with an afternoon event for spouses to provide an experience and promote our local businesses.  Time frame is between 1 and 5 p.m.  Tanhan suggested a Shopping Scavenger Hunt.  It could involve a Map, a puzzle, to determine the clue to the next location, and provide an overview of the area. 
Other ideas:
A bag of clues w/letters inside.  Each store comes up with its own clue; at the end, come up with a phrase to solve a puzzle.  It could be timed.
Each person registered gets a bag.  It needn't be confined to the downtown.  Starting point would be the Railroad Museum Gift Shop.   
It was suggested that the information be put out in advance, so the attendees know what to expect, and possibly boost attendance.  Businesses wishing to get involved, let us know asap.  Contact List of Businesses involved is needed.  Consider a giveaway item or discount at YOUR business to registrants.  You may also want to think of special items to offer for souvenirs, snacks, etc.
