Group to meet to discuss promoting “localism”
Re>Think Local will host a town hall meeting in Beacon at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4, to discuss its mission to promote “localism” among businesses and consumers. The group works to help local, independent business owners in the Mid-Hudson Valley, including retailers, farmers, artists, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, builders, service providers, restaurants, freelancers and nonprofits, bring sustainable practices to their work.
The event will take place at the Beahive Beacon, at 291 Main St. For more information, visit rethinklocal.org or golocalhudsonvalley.org. Go Local Hudson Valley encourages businesses, individuals and non-profits to pledge to spend 10 percent of their dollars locally.
