Recently the WDBA was awarded a $500 Shop Local grant to help create a "Support Your Local Businesses" Directory to be distributed at town halls, libraries, realtors, banks and other local businesses. An online version will also be posted on the WDBA website. Students at Bartlett High School will be assisting in the layout and design gaining real world experience using their new digital media lab, so this truly is a community project.
You are invited to participate by filling out the form below. Feel free to invite other local businesses you know who may be interested. There are several options including a FREE basic listing for WDBA members, display ad or coupon. You should also include any graphics or logos along with your information. Need a new logo? Let us know and the students will be happy to work with you and give you their creative ideas.
The directories will be distributed in early October, just in time for the holiday shopping season. In addition to businesses we will also include listings for local non-profit organizations.
Deadline to send in your information and payment is August 25.

The Webster Dudley Business Alliance co-sponsored a Chili Chowdown on February 12 at Isador's Organics located on 261 Main Street in Oxford, MA. There were 9 entries including vegetarian, turkey, beef & bean and even a curry entry at varying levels of spiciness. Over 40 guests attended and everyone got their fill and voted as to who they thought was best. All proceeds will go to the Hand Fruit Program which brings fresh, organic fruit to local schools. Hope to see you at next year's Chili Chowdown! See our Local Social Page for more pictures from this event.
