I want to thank everyone for their support last week as we rallied for votes in the Rockland Trust “Small Business Big Dreams” contest. As we wait for Rockland Trust to announce the winners, it gives me a moment to pause and re-group and feel intense appreciation for everyone who made efforts on our behalf. To the many folks who stepped up and contacted their friends, thank you!!!
This contest gave me the opportunity to reach out to folks I haven’t connected with in some time and gave me an excuse to walk up to complete strangers and introduce myself. No-one was spared including grocery cashiers & gas station attendants. Everyone was very nice and excited to participate. In the end, we were very near to 900 votes with over 1700 views. A respectable showing that I am proud of. We done good! It looked like we placed 5th, but I won’t know until Rockland Trust announces it later today.
Over-all, it was an exhausting and exciting experience. I am confident that with or without the grant, your Buzz Around will continue to grow and spread good news. We are ready for the growth the coming year will bring, and have some fun contests and events of our own launching soon… stay tuned.
