    It is designed to represent businesses from Hopland to Laytonville, across the county to Boonville, Fort Bragg and the South coast. The focus of the campaign is to create a central marketing effort to support local businesses to generate income while closed to the public.

    The campaign is a perfect platform to market your services, gift cards, and products. It will directly link customers to your selling platform. (delivery, curbside pickup, etc. within the guidelines of the most recent Shelter In Place orders must be observed)





    I'm partnering with the County, EDFC, West Center and the other Chambers in the County with meetings twice a week so we can brainstorm how we can best support you.

    Please let me know how else I can support you and your businesses.

    I hope that you are all doing as well as can be expected under these stressful times.

    Take care, STAY HOME and be well.
