Shop Local: Farmville Christmas Show This year many people are trying to shop local and support the local economy. I read somewhere that for every dollar spent locally, sixty cents stays within the community.  So with that in mind, stop by this year's Farmville Christmas Show. There will be lots of local vendors there with homemade crafts, books, furniture, seasonal gifts and more.  This is the perfect spot to pick up unique gifts for your family and friends.   Plus the best part it is a fundraiser to help STEPS Centre, the community with job training and employment.    Where: STEPS Centre, 100 Industrial Park Rd.

Student writers and photographers from Longwood University colloborated to bring this great project to life and an exhibition was held at the Farmville Farmer's Market last week. The stories and photographs focused on issues of hunger and nutrition in the local area and provided a wonderful example of "Town and Gown" working together.    Many local Farmville organizations and individuals supported the project helping to make it a reality. The works were displayed at the Farmer's Market over the course of two days where everyone was welcome to come along and view. An opening reception was held the first evening allowing members of the public to meet and talk with the students and learn more about their work.

On Thursday I had the opportunity of hosting an after hours event with our local Chamber of Commerce. The Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce has been hosting these events for many years now and it is a great way to bring the local business community together. The Farmville area is lucky to be served by a great Chamber that is so active in the community and serves the local businesses so well. Often we get so wrapped up in the day to day tasks involved with running a business it can be difficult to take time and network with other business owners in the local area. It's great to get this opportunity every so often to relax and chat with each other. It's an opportunity to reconnect with those we may not have been able to see for a while but also to make new connections. The networking tha...

Local Business Highlight: Appomattox River Co. Folks, let me tell you about one of our neighbors - Appomattox River Co. who's main outlet is located on North Main Street in Farmville VA, with 2 other stores in Hampton and Richmond. Upon visiting Appomattox River Co. you will notice many things that you won't encounter at one of the big box stores that happen to have a few boats and Bubba (a so called expert) to sell them. First, of all how about 1,000 canoes and kayaks in stock, plus any and I mean any accessories that you could want. They have a staff that not only sells boats but paddle themselves and know the boats inside and out. And should you need service or repair they have a complete shop right on sight.       Come visit them on Demo Day June 8th at Wilck's Lake here in Farmvill...
