Press Release
DATE: 3/25/2012 "River Valley Ideaville Cash Mob Call to Action "
River Valley Ideaville events committee has selected the next 3 businesses to be "Mobbed" according to Event Coordinator, Stefanie Wilson. River Valley Ideaville has launched a local initiative to help support the small locally owned businesses that are struggling economically. The group is sponsoring a community event on: March 30th at Gone Loco! Café at No View Farm at 855 South Rumford Rd.

Then beginning in April we will change from dedicating a day to dedicating a week to each business:
Week of April 9th will focus on Mrs. B's Store on Dickvale Rd in Peru
Week of April 21st will focus on Wardwell's on Rt. 17 in Mexico

We are asking our River Valley Community to consciously shop and purchase at the shops listed above. When making your purchase, be sure that you tell them that Ideaville sent you! Then go to Ideaville on Facebook and tell us how you feel about your local purchase!

Anyone that is interested in the future of locally owned businesses in the River Valley are invited to attend future meetings. The meetings will include gathering and sharing information that will help identify needs and gain ideas for the River Valley. If you know of a River Valley small business that could use support of the local community and Ideaville's Initiative, please contact us.

River Valley Ideaville is a group of concerned citizens from the River Valley that was formed in 2011. Long term objectives of these meetings would include increasing interest in River Valley locally owned small businesses, help stem the exodus of businesses from the area, increase purchases of local products, and get commitments to meet specific small business needs in the River Valley.

The Ideaville Group will continue to meet regularly to accomplish these long-term objectives. If you have any questions or to RSVP, please contact Annette Marin or Phone (207) 364-1080
