Holidays and Business Promotions

MayoFL05172015 (4)Holidays and Business Promotions for some of our local small businesses. We hope everyone will spend some time in our local businesses during the holiday seasons. Anything from shopping at our local grocery store, eating out in one of the restaurants and buying some trinkets for your loved ones from one of our shops. We would also like our of our friends and family to promote these businesses that have an online presence and/or social media account page that we can “like”, “share”, and “follow” in the coming year. We have noticed that quite a few of the Mayo small businesses have been posting more on their social media pages, updating their websites with a new look and some have even gotten new social media pages and/or websites.

Fall Season Getting You Down

MayoFL05172015 (28)Fall season getting you down? Over the last several months we have all been hoping for a little cooler weather, a cessation of the bugs and time from our many chores to have a little fun. Now if only the weather would cool off enjoy for us to enjoy it. We may be inviting the bad weather by asking for cooler temperatures but we really could use it right about now.

The holidays are coming, people are traveling more, visiting their family and just trying to get out more. So, please be careful out there when you on the road. Hopefully, everyone’s harvests have gone well and the fall crops should be getting ready for picking if they haven’t been already. The kids have been enjoying school, we hope, participating in their chosen sports and learning new things. But we all need a little break every now and then. If you were able to attend the Pioneer Festival last month we hope you have a great time, took lots of pictures and are willing to share your experiences. Drop us a line using our Contact Us form.

Schools are Back In

With summer ending and fall beginning there will be more school sporting events and we would like to start writing about our local schools sports teams as well as any amateur sports leagues. If we haven’t listed your teams upcoming games yet on our Community Calendar page please CONTACT US with the information and we will add them. We would also like to include local businesses and churches events on the Community Calendar. We will be posting some of these events on all of our Social Media pages such as:

Have You Been to Troy Springs State Park Recently

TSSP05062015 (1) (Copy) Have You Been to Troy Springs State Park Recently? It has a picnic area with barbecue grills under shady oak and pine trees, lovely breezes and a view of the Suwannee River along with fishing from the floating dock. The spring is currently still flooded but for only $5 per car load you can still have a great day enjoying yourself with your family and friends. Hopefully, before school lets out for the summer the river water will have gone down enough so that the Troy Springs park ranger, Tina, will be able to open that area up to swimmers and divers. We have been here for 7 days now and it is very quiet and peaceful here. We have seen a large hawk swooping around the horse barn area on it’s daily rounds, a small group of young deer moving between the water management land areas and here in the mornings and late afternoons and some large rabbits bouncing here and there.

Start a Mobile Boutique Business

MobileFoodIdeas (1)What this county needs to be put on the map is some new ideas. We want to start a Mobile Boutique Festival that is held about once a month or once every three months. The first few events can be held at the Veteran’s Memorial Park with local and school bands providing the entertainment. It can even be held at a different Community Center each quarter to spice things up. Most of the Community Centers have lots of room to hold events and the Center’s building itself can be used by various charity organizations in and around the county to put up displays for the public. Of course, there will be food vendors too. The main thing is to have colorful and unique mobile shops that are all vintage trailers or old renovated RVs. This type of event has been growing over the years and could be a great draw for the county. Local businesses can get involved by creating their own “shop on wheels”, giving discounts to local people for painting, renovating supplies, putting up flyers in their brick-n-mortar stores, posting about the events on their websites and Facebook pages, etc.
