1st Thursday is back and were kicking them off Block Party Style!  You guys know and love your local businesses and we want to celebrate that with a spotlight on a different buisness every month.  As there are a group of top-notch, super cute, totally friendly businesses sitting on State Stree we decided to throw a big party to celebrate each of them! There will be a ribbon cutting...or three to start the party! The lineup will be:
 The Pampered Pooch
Melissa White and her team have been keeping your favorite four-legged friends clean and happy for almost 2 years now.  Help us show our appreciation and tell her how much we love her little Downtown shop!
Victoria Arriero-Thomas Studio a.k.a VATS
Have you met Tori yet?  She has a passion for teaching children and it shows! The mamas that come into my shop have the daily praise report and it makes you want to go a be a part of what Tori is doing.  It isn’t just singing either but I’ll let you do the talking when you come by to see her!

Hey, that’s me! I’ve been running my upholstery and home decor shop on Idaho Street for a little over a year now but made the decision to move over to State Street just a few weeks ago.  The upholstery service is booming and the retails is getting better and better but now I get to add a Craft Classroom to the mix!  You’ll have to stop in for details but I can tell you, it’s going to be fun!
We’re not stopping there folks!  There will be face-painting for the littles (and maybe even for the not-so-littles), chocolate, of course, from Weiser Classic Candy and the coffee we all thrive on at D & L Coffee.  To top it all of we added food, provided by each business as they see fit, and music!  This is going to be an acoustic event so please feel free to bring your lawn chairs, get comfy and have listen!
This event, and all the 1st Thursdays to come, are really about community.  We, the business owners, love Weiser and seeing all your smiling faces walk through our doors.  In the spirit of that, every month during the summer months, from 5pm - 7pm, we are going to have a little party at a different location celebrating the business and the people supporting it...YOU!  Get your calendars out because we’ve got a few already booked and excited to see you!
