Amy Quarry displays the two calendars.

Community connections and supporting businesses

Small Town Love’s first ever calendar is now for sale in 75 independent businesses within Q-Town.

They’re hot off the presses and the love is quickly spreading.

Small Town Love’s first ever calendar is now for sale in 75 independent businesses within Q-Town. Featuring two options (both have the same community events and coupons), the brightly coloured calendars showcase scenic shots from local photographers.

“Sixteen photographers are featured,” explained Small Town Love creative choreographer, Amy Quarry.

Through a contest on Facebook, fans voted on their top shots; from there Quarry had the tough task of choosing the final 24.

With 75 businesses highlighted, the calendar works much the same as last year’s book, with a few tweaks – the coupons featured on the back of each month are only valid for 30 days. So once January is done, you rip off the page and have February to shop for savings.

But for Quarry, it’s not just about the great deals, the fantastic pictures, or the list of community events featured on every page – it’s about community connections and supporting local business.

“When our kids sports teams need a sponsor, it’s small business we rely on,” she said.

“These projects are based on a collaborative investment model, because I believe rising tides lift all boats.”

Calendars are $10 and available at 335 Vaughn (upstairs of Community Futures.) Or check out smalltownlove.ca for a list of businesses carrying calendars. Businesses interested in partnership with Small Town’s next project are also encouraged to check out the website.
