Every day in our walk in life, we have the opportunity to promote Barnesville, to encourage growth of businesses, our school and our entire community. Telling people why we choose to live here, telling them about the things we enjoy about our community, telling them about the school system and about the businesses, services and organizations that we have are all qualities that we share. We do this through our business and personal interactions everywhere we go. Just mention Potato Days and everyone’s heard about Barnesville!
This past weekend we had a huge opportunity for us to tell others our story. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, volunteers visited with interested visitors to the Barnesville Booth at the Home and Garden Show at the Fargo Dome. Many people were interested in leaving the larger communities for a small, town to raise their families. They were excited to learn more about what Barnesville has to offer and what sets us apart from the other similar size towns in the area.
The volunteers that helped tell the Barnesville story this past weekend include city council members, EDA board members, Main Street Board and committee members and residents. They all have a special interest in doing what they can to help grow Barnesville. We appreciate their generosity in giving their time and enthusiasm at the booth, but it doesn’t stop there. We need your help to continue these efforts all year long! Help us continue to share the message that Barnesville is a great place to call home!
It’s been said, “Enthusiasm is NOT the same as being excited. One gets excited about going on a roller coaster. One becomes enthusiastic about creating and building a roller coaster.” This quote sums up the attitude of many of the volunteers for Barnesville that we work with. They are building a better Barnesville through their enthusiasm.
