09 Feb Happy Holidays & Welcome to Women of Vision’s First Newsletter! December 2017
The Women of Vision Redding’s website will be launched in January 2018! Thanks to our hardworking member Katherine Elsken, our online presence will be kicking off in the new year. A Board of Directors will be forming soon (invitations to apply will be out next month) & a new membership structure will be rolled out soon.
Small Business Saturday was a Success!
Our Small Biz Saturday Scavenger Hunt was a big success. The event was covered in KRCR and featured on the front page of Record Searchlight’s Sunday paper! Thank you to Jennifer Lynn, Hailey Hurley, Mariz Brown & Kerri Medel for organizing this fun day for all of us.
This month we launched a holiday campaign running from December 1-25th featuring our members at http://shoplocalredding.com/. By shopping local, you help contribute to the growth of Redding’s community and create more opportunities for all of us. With just about 10 more days until Christmas, you still have time to shop small.
