Etna Needs Your Help...
We're sure those of you who have lived and worked in this town share our concern for its future. We, of the Etna Economic Development Corporation, wanted to take this opportunity to share with you, the shareholders of Etna's prosperity, some of our vision of our town. Our hopes and dreams are for an Etna community that is vibrant, economically healthy, environmentally friendly and, in short, a wonderful place to live and work. A number of local business people and residents are working diligently behind the scenes to move the community in this direction, but WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We realize our Etna business community does not offer every product or service to meet every possible need. We do, however, believe that the businesses in the community provide many of the essentials of everyday life, and, in some instances, much more.
The vitality of our business community plays a major role in the quality of the community at large. Police and fire departments, road crews, recreational areas, and activities such as Light the Night, summer concerts, street fairs, local government programs, education for our youth, environmental initiatives and much more, are dependent on the tax revenues collected from the local business community.
With this in mind, we ask you, the residents of Etna, to do what you can to patronize your local businesses. So doing will help ensure the long-

Small Business Saturday
The EEDC is again sponsoring Small Business Saturday in Etna on Saturday, November 25. Small Business Saturday began in 2010 to encourage people across the country to support small, local businesses. Small businesses are often overlooked by customers who are enticed by larger “big box” companies and this can adversely affect the local economy in more negative ways. Come out and support Etna businesses on Saturday, November 25th and get some of your holiday shopping done! Celebrate your community with the small businesses that make your town unique! SHOP SMALL!!!!
