We are proud of our local law enforcement graduates and thank them for helping to protect us.
To the “Think Local First” campaign, which kicked off Dec. 10 at Springbrook in Milford.
The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce and the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce have initiated the campaign to support local businesses and economy.
At the kick-off event, Jeff Haggerty of Ace Hardware, Betsy Westad Cunningham of Artware, Chad Welch of Smith Cooperstown and Scott White of the Bank of Cooperstown addressed the purchasing power of dollars in the local economy, and the importance of supporting small businesses in the region.
The timing of the event made sense, as many people think of shopping locally most often during the holiday season. But we are glad to see this will be an ongoing effort, as the impact local businesses have on the local economy is important all year long.
