|Marilyn Stodola, Main Street Manager of the ‘Cliffs Commercial District, has announced two events of interest to both the general public and to business owners.
The first, scheduled for Saturday, February 20, is “Celebrate Moonlight in the Mountains.” This will be an opportunity to absorb some lunacy, in the form of legends about the full moon, and then to snowshoe or cross country ski in the light of the full moon. Convening at 5 p.m. in the 2nd Street Kitchen Back Room, the event begins with a presentation by Ed Stewart, board member of the Dark Skies of the Wet Mountain Valley. He will talk, and answer questions about, “Myths and Folklore of the Full Moon.” Afterwards, participants can break into small groups for full moonlighted trekking in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The event is free and open to everyone.
The second is offered to all business owners in Silver Cliff and Westcliffe. Again convening in the Back Room, at 5 p.m. on Monday, February 22, the ‘Cliffs Action Revitalization Team (CART) and the Custer County Chamber of Commerce will be presenting the video, “Turn Any Business or Community Into A Consumer Destination.” Part of the Destination University John Schallert video series, the educational piece can assist business owners with sound marketing strategies to increase visibility, low-cost promotion techniques, and drawing consumers into each business with the intent of increasing year-round patronage.
This is the first viewing of a seven part video series, and is highly recommended for business owners seeking techniques and methods for developing their business into a destination for consumers and visitors, while increasing foot traffic and revenue.
For more information on either or both events, please contact Stodola at 783-0604 or 727/642-5342, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
