When Spring Returns ... So Does Welcome Brigade
The Welcome Brigade Bag is a reuseable bag distributed by Welcome Brigade Committee members to residents and businesses that are new to the Penfield community. Each year, approximately 30 businesses and 450 residents join the Penfield community. This is your chance to attract new business!   Promoting your business through the Penfield Welcome Brigade Bag is an opportunity available only to PBC Members.

The Welcome Brigade Bag provides a great opportunity to promote your business' products and/or services to new community members.  Though brochures about your business can certainly be added, consider an item that will draw attention to your business: discount coupons, magnets, business cards with a piece of candy attached, pens, etc.  

This is an ongoing project through the PBC and businesses are welcome to join in at any time. Items can be dropped off at the Edward Jones Office located at  2160 Penfield Road Suite 8 Penfield, NY 14526
