SHOP LOCAL

Mother's Day
May 10
Dads, remember kids won't have homemade gifts from school this year. There is still time to pick up something memorable for mom - keep in mind that there are only 5 shopping days left!

Purchase a gift or gift card from a local business now and pamper mom later. Want some ideas?
Order takeout from her favorite local restaurant.

Oh and don't forget the flowers, wine or a new book.
