I hope you are doing well! As you may know I’ve been involved with Art Happening Bridgewater for awhile which is a community creative space for all ages. You likely even know it’s location, the fun red building at 757 King Street.
Art Happening runs solely on grants and donations and we are excited to be working with artists in the community to host a Silent Art Auction on November 25 & 26. Please click on the poster below for more information. You can stop in on either day to check out the amazing artwork and make a bid. We even have a ‘buy now’ option as well. We’d really love for you to stop by and show your support. You know, art does make a beautiful gift (hint hint!).
Thanks again and see you there!
The Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Initiative is a project designed to assist in creating an environment to help retain and expand local business by identifying challenges and helping facilitate actionable solutions. Data is collected by interviewing participating businesses in the Bridgewater area in an effort to identify issues and concerns that impede their growth. These interviews provide information about our business community and its needs that influence policy making from the municipal to national level.
The last time this project happened in 2006, the resulting data helped secure funding for a number of community projects like the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Center, Bridgewater Marina and the Riverfront Development Project. We are looking for volunteers to interview 100 businesses between February 15th and February 26th. Each volunteer would interview three businesses. Volunteers would also be required to attend a 2 hour training session on February, 17th from 5 to 7 PM in the boardroom at 373 King Street, Bridgewater. We have conducted two training sessions on February 10th and have another being held on February 11th.
