I just wanted to drop you a note regarding the "First Thursday" events that we have been participating in with the Chamber. As you might imagine our business slows down a bit over the winter, but on the "First Thursday" nights we have seen, on average, a 75% increase in business and traffic. I originally thought it might not be as drastic an improvement as the weather got warmer, but I was greatly mistaken, evidenced by the numbers we showed on April 1!
Please accept my thanks as a grateful business owner for this program and plan to be a continuing participant in this event
