Helping Our Neighbors

Federal Government Closed

We have created this web page to help our neighbors who are employees/contractors of the Federal government who will be impacted by the Federal government shutdown. Those merchants who have signed up have agreed to provide a discount in the event the Federal government is shutdown as of November 17, 2023.

With many thanks to all our local businesses who have generously offered to provide discounts to our impacted neighbors.
