Who's ready to make a BIG impact on Small Business Saturday?  To help our community get excited about supporting local, independently owned businesses on November 27th (Small Business Saturday), a group of your favorite small businesses have teamed up for a photo scavenger hunt contest! If you've never participated in a photo scavenger hunt, here's the short of it - complete the prompt at each business and post the photo on your social media account.  Easy, peasy!
