By the community. For the community.
We want to rebuild, reinvent, and revive our community in Canton, NC
People around the world should encourage tourism. Why? It is very simple. When a place is promoted for tourists to go, the local businesses thrive, and the tourists enjoy themselves as well.
When you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms — continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.
