Falk to Present Proclamation at Dane County Buy Local Initiative Meeting
Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk will proclaim Wednesday, January 12, 2005 “Buy Local” Day in Dane County. Falk will issue a formal proclamation to the Dane County Buy Local Initiative meeting Wednesday morning at the Concourse Hotel at 8:00am. Falk will also address the group and talk about ongoing efforts in the county to support local farmers and retailers by buying local products.
“Buying local products is one of the things that all citizens can do to help Dane County continue to thrive,” said Falk. “By supporting our local businesses, citizens can both get a great product but also help their region succeed economically.”
Falk’s proclamation (attached) stresses the importance of buying local and notes that “the owners of local businesses improve our economy by reinvesting profits here and lend great support to local charities, civic organizations, and neighbor or community-wide associations.”
