Sunday Fundae: Supporting Small Businesses can be a Treat

August is Family Fun Month. One way to wrap up summer and prepare for heading back to school is a family visit to the local ice-cream shop. Try to guess each other’s favorites and sample new flavors. Traveling? Look for small-town ice-cream shops wherever you go — and don’t forget to take pictures. Many places offer non-dairy and vegan options too. It’s also a great time to support local small businesses. A general Google search or a scroll through Facebook will reveal a ton of local ice cream shops. Make a goal to try a new place each week to share your support throughout the region. Tag the places you visited in posts, give them great reviews if you enjoyed their product and share the love. Most of all, show your support to the staff who are working daily with the public and could use some uplifting as well. Oh, and don’t forget your mask!
