So yesterday, at the kickoff event for Fall Into Huntersville, Midas Spring Water sold bottles of water, but put koozies with the Blue Harbor Bank name and logo around them.
Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics talked to The Great Frame Up and iPhoto about working together to put framed photos in the halls of HFFA to not only highlight photos of the area, but the show off the quality of framing from The Great Frame Up and to dress up the halls of HFFA.
Butter Bean talked to a local pastor who has wonderful musicians in his church about performing during events.
Foster Frame & Design was able to let more people know of their location, just a short distance from the Town Center.
The Chappell brothers, local students, worked during the entire event and got four hours of community service for their respect schools.
Discovery Place Kids passed out flyers for Rural Hill (who was busy working the first day of the Amazing Maize Maze).
Kids were able to ride on a pony handled by a future Olympian.
A passerby the 32 Flavors Boutique table made a suggestion for the business that may prove to be good for both exposure and profits……
And on a personal note, I was so darn hungry after the event that I drove to Earth Fare, ended up talking to people in the store about why I was so dirty (working the event) and found out that they have businesses in Huntersville — and now have added their names to the email list!
Over 50 businesses participated in the event, and we’re still grappling with figuring out the attendance figures — even with the parking garage in Town Center, people were parking at Huntersville Elementary School and walking up the Gilead to see what was going on.
There is power in partnering. And Huntersville Connection is creating a greater sense of community. Kudos to the Fall Into Huntersville committee. Your efforts over the past several months on this kickoff event were extraordinary and well worth it. What a great day was had by all.
