|Mid Atlantic Bully Buddies|
No matter how enticing the surroundings, the biggest attraction for me is the people we meet. Every trip out our front door leads to new conversations and new ideas. One such group is the Mid Atlantic Bully Buddies rescue mission that had set up a tent to help Pit Bulls find loving forever homes. While there we even got to meet "Chello", the cutest white and spotted bully ever. She greets you by nuzzling her head right in your lap!
These events produce recognition for many small groups of people toiling away at their causes. This weekend highlighted the dogs already a part of our community, introduced available dogs to their future families and brought a large wave of commerce to our region. It was a win-win all around.
The local businesses sponsor organizations to create these events to promote Downtown Frederick. Both local crafters and businesses work synergistically to bring visitors and residents a spectacularly unique Frederick experience. Musicians and artists draw tourism for businesses, the businesses feature pieces from Frederick's past and visitors bring something for the future. We all get to enjoy the beautiful cultivation of our home, entrepreneurs are given an opportunity to showcase their work, shop owners have access to an eclectic and flourishing market of visitors, and charitable organizations are given a boost. What more could we hope for? - Only to grow the idea to a larger scale.
