GBA Social
 Third Thursdays
Isn't it nice to stop after work and have a quick drink and appetizers with some fellow business owners? It's a good way to get to know other people in town, to network, and to have fun. We'll be gathering September 15 for the next GBA Social. If you'd like to host, contact Kate.

The conversation on the GBA facebook page is lively. Come take a look.
Ben Franklin

Franklin County's 200th

This is the weekend! We celebrate splitting off from our southern neighbors in Hampshire County in 1811 and forming this great county named after Founding Father, jack of all trades, and toast of Paris Benjamin Franklin. Events kick off Friday night, continue on Saturday (when Summer Fest and  Sidewalk Sales turn Main Street into bargain territory) and Sunday (see schedule ). Be sure to drop by the GBA booth and buy a raffle ticket for $10. Only 200 will be sold and the payoff is $1,000!

Good Times at the GRF

Great to see you at the Green River Festival! Thanks to all who came and boogied, or volunteered. Visitors purchased more than 500 green eggs, meaning if you brought us coupons, coupon holders should be finding their way to your business soon.




Smile and Shoot!

A great new member benefit: visitors to the new GBA website will see rotating images of member businesses on the top of the site on every page. All you need to do is send Kate a photo of your business, with you in front of it, or not. Send a .JPG in landscape format and we'll size it. Interested in promoting your business further on the website? Get on the waiting list to be a featured member. For $100 for one month, users will see a photo and profile of your business that remains on the page as they navigate throughout the site. We're booked through the fall, but will have openings in time for the holidays.

Speaking of the website, if you have a favorite blog related to Greenfield, let Kate know. We will link to it from our site.
