Let’s Get Civic

April 8, 2021



Erica picks up litter as she walks her dog around the neighborhood. She lives in a duplex a couple of blocks off of Main Street and she always keeps her front flowerbeds maintained. She makes an extra effort to patronize local businesses whenever possible. Erica attends council meetings when contentious issues come up. She volunteers for a couple of area non-profits and can always be counted on to donate to local causes. Erica supports her community and gets so much back from her community in return.
