The Band Of Locals


is a community minded program banding together to support our locally owned businesses.

Who are we?

Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining our towns, linking neighbors and building economic and social relationships.  Locally owned businesses put back a much larger share of their revenue into the local economy and contributing to local causes.

Our Mission

Where we shop, where we eat and have fun — all of it makes our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. Our tourism businesses also benefit.

​SUPPORT LOCAL – Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future.
