Autumn is probably my favorite season, it is filled with sights and smells of our changing season. The color of the leaves, the smell that fills the air and the cool breeze that hits ones face all makes me smile. This introduction to my blog post is intended to set the stage to invite you to fall in love with Newfoundland and Labrador and especially to “Fall in Love with Bay Roberts”.
Bay Roberts is a busy little town , a community that is very active and progressive. It is also a community to be discovered, to be explored and experienced. During our autumn season our Tourism and Economic Development Department launched a marketing campaign called “Fall in Love with Bay Roberts”. The primary purpose of this initiative is to promote the town of Bay Roberts and to support the business community in the region. Our department has designed as well as linked events to entice residents and visitors to experience our region.
Supporting our Business
As part of our promotion we have invited our business community to become involved by registering their business as a “participating Business”. By doing so, they receive a large sign that is placed in their window or door in support of the project and offer a special or discount during the campaign.
Although business registration is still ongoing, here is a partial list of the participants. If you see the sign in the door please show your support.
