The Door County Buy Local Steering Committee is holding a mixer on Tuesday, February 7, from 5:30 – 7 pm at Pine Crest Village, 1241 North 18th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.
The Buy Local Mixer will feature a presentation on “Timely Tax Tips” by Inge Bacon, Baylake Bank Trust Officer and will also provide an update from the Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) about the status and activities of the Buy Local program. The Door County Buy Local program is a grass-roots economic development initiative that seeks to strengthen local businesses, increase employment opportunities and educate the public about the importance of buying locally whenever possible.
The Buy Local Initiative encourages networking opportunities between local businesses. A second priority is educating the public about the economic value of keeping as many dollars as possible in Door County along with efforts to share information about what services and products are available through Door County enterprises. A third focus encourages non-profit, civic organizations and governmental bodies to do as much business as practical with Door County firms.
The February 7 event is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Buy Local initiative in Door County. There will be food and beverages available; attendees are asked to make a $5 donation to help defray costs. Please, RSVP for this event by February 3 or ask questions with a phone call the DCEDC at 920.743.3113 ext. 203 or by email to Bill@doorcountybusiness.com.
