9th Annual Independents Week
When in the Course of Human Events, it becomes appropriate for communities to assert their independence, to denounce uniformity and celebrate their uniqueness. To ensure that critical decisions are not made by some distant board of directors but by people who live in the community and who feel the impacts of their decisions. A desire for economic freedom, human creativity, (and the oddities that make this home), requires local businesses and propels to Think Local First. Think Local, Buy Local, Be Free
