Good morning everyone! The Band of Locals - Buy Local First was excited to film this morning's show at the new SUNNY 97.3 studio on the top floor of Artworks in Big Rapids' building in Downtown Big Rapids! Look forward to seeing all that this new studio becomes and congratulations Steve on this. Host Carlleen Rose's guests today were Carolyn Chipman with the Zonta Club of Big Rapids, Michigan and Fred & Sherine with the Paris Country Shoppe. First up, Carolyn talked about their one annual fundraiser with their big raffle drawing! This year is going to be a big one - you could win a Wreath of Gift Cards! You can win a beautiful holiday wreath and many gift certificates from local businesses in our community valued at $675! That is an amazing prize. We will post in this post's comments a flyer with details, list of gift certificates and the draw date (November 16th) and more. Thank you to our local businesses for their support/donation of these certificates and proceeds of the Zonta tickets will go to local charities - so it's a win-win for all. Tickets are $20 and you can buy from a Zonta club member and some businesses like The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium and Patterson's Flowers Inc. etc. Can contact and learn more about the Zonta Club by going on their Website: www.zontaclubofbigrapids.com, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Zonta-Club-of-Big-Rapids-Michigan-338094242969354 and Phone: 231-591-3817. Thank you for all you do Zonta Club! Fred & Sherine were in studio and we enjoyed talking with them and learning more about their business at the Paris Country Shoppe. This place has a lot of history and special meaning to all and we love supporting local businesses like theirs. Can find amazing finds here. They are located at 22203 Northland Dr #1 in Paris.
