Quote of the Week
“I’ve decided with the coming election that I will not run for mayor again.”
- John Irwin  
- on deciding to run for   
council and not for mayor   


Summer is quickly reaching its end, and the cooler days of autumn are nearly upon us. As the nights grow longer and families prepare for a return to school and an end to summer vacations, remember to consider supporting the local economy whenever possible when purchasing goods of many kinds.
The Crowsnest Pass is home to numerous small businesses that need your support to continue succeeding. When these businesses do well, the money stays in the community and the economic benefits trickle through to help everyone prosper. When money is spent outside of the community, it's gone.
Locally owned and operated businesses in the Pass can provide many of the items you need both for everyday life and for hobbies, recreation, or other events this summer or fall, with no need to shop away from home.
Consider, for example, doing as much of your back to school shopping as possible here at home to. Items for barbecues, family dinners, backyard get-togethers, and many other occasions can be found in the Pass.
Fall is a time of change and reflection, and just might be the time to consider a change in shopping habits.
Work n Play
With the right mindset, shopping locally can make a big difference in a small town, and with your support these locally owned and operated businesses can continue to provide quality services and products at home.
The Pass Herald encourages everyone to continue shopping locally, supporting businesses in the Crowsnest Pass.
