A word of thanks
Letter to the Editor (the Camera):
'Tis the season to give thanks and this year more than ever it is important to remember all the reasons we have to be thankful. In Downtown Boulder (where 85 percent of the businesses are locally owned and operated), we are thankful for the amazing support of the local community as well as visitors from across the world who have helped keep our array of shops, world-class restaurants, diverse businesses and entertainment venues thriving over the past three decades and counting.
As Boulder prepares to celebrate our Sesquicentennial in 2009, we are thankful for the vision of our first settlers to make Boulder into the city it has become today. We are thankful for the long-standing Boulder entrepreneurial spirit that has resulted in a successful business community. We are thankful for everyone who dedicates so much of his or her time and energy to ensure the success of a business. We are also thankful for all of the dedicated employees who work tirelessly and believe in achieving the ultimate level of success.
With the uncertain economic outlook we face as a nation, now is the time to reach out to our neighbors and friends by supporting local businesses every chance we get. We wish everyone throughout the city much success and prosperity as we enter this holiday season and send out our sincerest gratitude to all those who visit Downtown Boulder, most especially the local community. We are thankful that you are keeping us the true heart of this amazing city. Remember to "Shop Local, Give Local" for a prosperous new year.
Jane Jenkins, Executive Director
