Medway Business Council in the community: join us 5/21 at Medway Pride Day!
This year on Saturday, May 21, the local business community is out in full force at the largest gathering of businesses. Created to show pride in the Town of Medway, Medway Pride Day is an annual event run by dedicated volunteers Sarah Stone, Committee Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jennifer Pavlov, and supported by many businesses and organizations, including the Medway Business Council. (Donations to Pride Day are still welcome!)
For one busy day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., hundreds of Medway families visit the vibrant tables, tents, games and activities set up outside Medway Middle School, taking time to pick up lots of free giveaways, shop and play games, listen to music, and sample from the many food concessions while learning about local businesses and organizations. There’s no better way, post-COVID, to connect with your community than to get out there and talk to your customers – and potential customers – face to face!
Julie Dennehy, President of Medway Business Council and owner of Dennehy Public Relations, has participated in Medway Pride Day for decades. “There’s no better opportunity to talk to Medway parents, kids and other business owners than Medway Pride Day,” she said. “The energy and enthusiasm of our fabulous town is on full display, and all are encouraged to participate. I’m proud to be a Medway business owner, and to give back to our community by supporting this event.”
Ann Sherry, Senior Vice President at Charles River Bank, says, “For Charles River Bank, Medway Pride Day affords a wonderful opportunity to reach out to our community. We can visit with parents, children, business owners and others who love our town and want to share in the spirit of the day. It’s a great platform to learn more about what people need from their community bank and provide valuable information about creative solutions we offer.”
For those business owners seeking to make connections with other business owners, this event is a great way to meet and greet and build new relationships with those with whom you’ve never met. “Even if you make one great connection, your time and energy helping at Medway Pride Day is worth it,” said Dennehy.
If you haven’t been to a Medway Pride Day, drop by the Medway Business Council booth and say hello and scope out the scene for next year’s festivities – and consider participating if you own a local business. If you’d like to help out at the Medway Business Council booth, volunteers are still needed for afternoon shifts 12-3p – email email@example.com to volunteer (and yes, you may promote your business from our booth)!
