    4-12-12 Building a community while you build a business

    This last weekend, Rich and I participated in the annual Clinton Easter Egg Hunt.  This has been going on for close to 20 years, and as I handed out prizes I heard a mom comment that she came to this event when she was a child.

    No one did a formal count, but there were certainly hundreds of people – adults with their children – that participated.

    This event could not occur with out strong leadership (this year, Kathy Craven of Craven Insurance), lots of volunteers and contributions from the business community.

    I particularly noticed prizes from five Clinton businesses:

    • ·         Neil’s Clover Patch Café – free child’s milkshake
    • ·         Pickles Deli – free pickle
    • ·         Anchor Books and Coffee – free child’s hot chocolate
    • ·         Dairy Queen – free child’s sundae
    • ·         Critters and Company – free gold fish

     I did an informal check with the business owners, and, not surprisingly, learned that when a parent came in to get a child’s prize, other purchases were usually made.

    How great to contribute to a wonderful community event and build business at the same time!

    CLINTON Easter Egg Hunt--The event would NOT have happened without volunteers like Carolyn and Rich Tamler. Carolyn gave up a much-loved class to help me out.
    I also was aided by Sherren & Scott Anderson, Sherren's Glass Works; Hal Schlomann, Fern Ridge Alpacas; Jason Kalk, Lincoln Computers; Sherryl Christie-Bierschenk, Best Practice; and my dear husband, Bob Craven, Craven Insurance & Chair Clinton Chamber of Commerce.

    And stuffing those hundreds and hundreds of eggs with candy were the very GRANDsons of Libby McCauley, L & L Properties/Clinton Square; and Barb Parkes, K-9 Carts.

    THANK YOU ALL, from the children of Clinton and myself. Kathy Craven
