Dear BIA Membership
On September 3rd at the REACH Centre we are once again hosting our annual welcome dinner for the Ridgetown students that will be attending REACH for the 2014/2015 school year. There are approximately 43 students registered for the Ridgetown programs this year. Most of those students will be living in the area, which means they will be shopping in the area as well.
The BIA would like to start an initiative with the students to attract them to buy local and experience what Central Huron has to offer while they are here. Each individual business can determine what sort of deal or promotion they will provide to the students. The students will be issued student cards and will show this to receive the discount or selected promotion. All we ask is that you put a small post card in your window indicating that you are a participating business. We will be setting up a link on our website that the students can check regularly for changing discounts and promotions. This will be changed on a monthly basis and the information would need to be in to Genny (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the 15th of the previous month. If you do not indicate any change your promotion will stay the same.
As part of the dinner on September 3rd we are providing the students with welcome packages. We would like to kick off the initiative at the dinner with a sample post card, and a list of participating business. If you are interested in participating please send an email email@example.com BEFOREAUGUST 20TH, indicating you would like to participate and the deal or promotion you will be starting with.
