Weekly Village Update 9.19.19

Board Seats Available, Partnership Available, Free Grand Prix Tickets

The voice "FOR BUSINESS" in Blowing Rock!

Free tickets still available
Stop by the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce to pickup your free tickets

This is just a quick reminder that we still have free tickets for the Fisher Memorial Grand Prix coming up this Saturday at the Broyhill Equestrian Preserve. The weather looks beautiful for the weekend, and the local team is working diligently to make this a special event for Blowing Rock. 

This is a great opportunity to reward your best customers, guests, clients and perhaps your family with a special afternoon of international quality show jumping competition. 

It is hoped that this event will find a permanent home here in Blowing Rock, but we need to show strong community support to assure this opportunity continues.
