And not just one vote.
But eight votes. (Maybe more!)
Or one vote a day during National Business Week, May 3-10. That can actually be many more votes, because you can vote on your phone, tablet, laptop or computer each day.
Silverton is one of two finalists in the Small Business Revolution on Main Street contest and is competing against Wabash, Ind. Voters will decide the winning city by visiting the website www.smallbusinessrevolution.org during National Business Week.
The winning city will earn a prize worth $500,000 that includes: Website development, logo creation, email marketing, printed products and apparel and social media marketing for local businesses, plus $250,000 for physical updates to selected businesses which can include new business facades, landscaping, equipment, aesthetic updates and construction material.
Silverton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Stacy Palmer said the win would be a huge boast for the city in terms of tourism and helping local businesses. And when local businesses do well, it helps the entire community, especially since so many businesses donate to local schools and charities.
On Friday, May 6, the Silverton Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a “Let’s Vote for Silverton” rally at 6:30 p.m. at Towne Square Park. Participants will get stickers that will get them discounts at local stores during First Friday.
Silverton is the only town west of the Mississippi in this contest. We are going to have to send a lot of Tweets, post on Facebook, send text messages and more to get the votes we need to win this contest.
By working together, let’s win this for Silverton.
To vote: go to www.smallbusinessrevolution.org and watch a short video on Silverton and then vote.
The Silverton Chamber of Commerce invites you to explore and learn about the medley of treasures we have to share. Founded in 1854, Silverton is a historic town with stately homes shaded by grand old oak trees nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley.
Spring, summer, winter or fall, Silverton is a wonderful place with a full complement of amenities and activities. On any given day you can refresh yourself with a tour of The Oregon Garden, a walk through Silver Falls State Park, an exploration of the wonderful shops and restaurants in downtown Silverton or a visit to nearby farms and vineyards. Use this website as a guide for what to see and do around town.
With its scenic beauty, rich history, charming downtown and gems of nature – it’s no wonder Silverton is Oregon’s Garden City, the perfect place to grow your dreams!
I look forward to your next visit.
Stacy Palmer, Executive Director
