Saving Small Towns Is Meeting Topic

Saving a small town will be the subject of a luncheon meeting beginning at 11:30 a.m. March 29 at the People Inc. Conference Center in Sallisaw.

The meeting is sponsored by the Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce and features Deb Brown from SaveYour.Town.

Brown shares stories and advice on social media, working and living in a small town and creating the kind of community you want to live in. She is the executive director of the Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce in Iowa, and is online as @debworks.

She grew up in a town of 141 people - Geneva, Iowa. She loves to tell stories and share real world examples of how people are changing their small town into the kind of place the community wants to live, work and play in.

Brown does programs on small business, filling empty buildings, customer service, marketing and economic development.

She has presented her programs at chambers, for economic developers, tourism specialists, museum experts, business groups, and at conferences for numerous groups.

The chamber asks that those planning to attend RSVP by March 27 by calling the chamber at 918-775-2558.
