September-October 2020

The Montgomery Economic Development Corporation would like to thank everyone for supporting the MEDC and the annual golf outing this year. The support during these challenging times are appreciated. This year we were overwhelmed with generous donations, sponsors and gifts. Eight bottles of personalized wine bottles with the MEDC logo, were donated (see photo above) along with 15 certificates to have your own wine tasting event with your friends. Owner Bob Sipek, also provided $10 gift cards for every golfer. What a great idea for the holidays! Be sure to visit his shop or the website and be sure to ask for the MEDC discount. We hope at the time you receive this newsletter you are safe and business is getting somewhat back to normal.

Special Thanks to everyone who was a part of this event. We could not have done this without you.
All companies, individuals and sponsors were highlighted throughout the event and also on the MEDC website.
It was such a nice feeling to see so many people enjoying themselves at this event. With so many months of being isolated, I think we all needed some social activity in our lives.
Our businesses and community leaders are the life blood of our community. We have so many essential businesses in our community and we are extremely grateful for their service.
The weather almost held out for us, but not completely. The raffle prizes and great food made up for a little bit of rain. (I hope)
Please check out all our photos and be sure to thank our sponsors.
