CROSSING PATHS
Words of (not quite) Wisdom
from the Executive Director


Hello Cross Plains!

I am going to keep it simple today. Wisconsin is experiencing some of the biggest changes it has ever faced. In turn, our businesses need to figure out the best way to approach their re-opening. I offer you just a few things to think about as you begin your planning:

  1. This isn't a race: Take the time to open so that you feel 100% comfortable with the decisions you make.
  2. Work WITH the community: get feedback from your current and future customers
  3. Reach out to CPACC for assistance: We are here to help you from marketing, legislative and community outreach, research & sourcing (& more)

And on a final note, just a couple of key points in today's newsletter:

  • Join the Chamber!
  • Support our Memorial Day Activities: Celebrate at a Distance and Carry on a Cross Plains Tradition!

Be Safe & Healthy!

Kind Regards,

Terra Morris
Executive Director
