It goes without saying that the 2020 pandemic has changed life for each and every person around the world. Here in Westfield, each of us has been doing our part to keep our community bright and vital so we come back quicker and stronger than ever!
As we enter the holiday season, and the new year, now more than ever, it is important for us to stand together and support each other – which means that each of us has to do our part to keep local businesses open, and our neighbors safe and employed. Our local businesses are owned and operated by your neighbors. They care about, and are invested in, the future of our community, and it’s our job to support them in return.
The Patterson Library, Westfield Development Corporation (WDC) and the Westfield-Barcelona Chamber of Commerce have worked together with local businesses to bring a little “local” magic to this Christmas Season by creating a “Shop Local” sweepstakes. A drawing for three gift baskets of local items, valued at over $100 dollars each, will occur on December 18th at the Patterson Library. In order to have a chance to win one of these Westfield gift baskets, which are on display at the Library, simply shop in the Westfield-Barcelona local area and take your receipts to the Patterson Library.
Sue Poster, Community Coordinator for the Westfield-Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, said, “We are extremely grateful to the businesses and individuals who donated and made this sweepstakes possible. It truly was a collaborative effort between the Patterson Library, the Chamber and WDC to support our small businesses.”
As you look for those unique gifts this holiday season, remember, this is our community and these are our neighbors, so put your money where your heart is and shop local!
