Last week, the Greater Blairstown Business Association hosted Jingle on Main, celebrating small businesses and our amazing community here in beautiful Blairstown, NJ. We certainly have some people to thank!
Thank you to our Main Street businesses and vendors who offered wonderful shopping and cheerful hospitality for the holidays. Thank you to the community groups that came out and shared all they are doing to strengthen our town. Thank you to the restaurants and food vendors who kept our bellies full with many delicious treats.
Thank you to everyone who attended! We know that some travelled for hours to join us in Blairstown for Jingle on Main. For others the trip was short. Either way, we are thankful that you bundled up and supported our local businesses and community organizations.
Thank you to the North Warren Marching Band for parking cars and helping to keep traffic at a minimum.
A special thank you to Mike Lawlor who coordinated the music for the day. And thank you to the talented performers who had people dancing in the street -- Queen Bee and the Hive, Mari Byrd, Deb D'Anne and friends, Water Street, and Craig Evans.
Thank you to the Blairstown Police Department and Blairstown Ambulance Corp for keeping our guests safe all day. Thank you the Blairstown Department of Public Works for getting the snowflakes up and adding extra sparkle. Thank you to the Blairstown Town Committee for all their support.
Thank you to Kingfisher Farms for donating the tree and thank you to First Presbyterian Church for decorating it. And thank you to Gourmet Gallery for providing the electricity all season to keep the light on.
Thank you to GBBA members, whose generous contributions funded Jingle on Main and the GBBA scholarship fund.
Finally, thank, thank, thank you to the volunteers from the GBBA and Blairstown Enhancement Committee who helped plan Jingle on Main 2019 and who braved the cold in yellow safety jackets to coordinate the event on the 30th. We could not have made any of this happen without your dedication and commitment.
I am so grateful to have such an amazing community to celebrate and thankful for all the people who made Jingle on Main happen once again.
Until next year, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
