BUILDING CONNECTION ...
Sidewalks give us another chance to smile. Some may have noticed that we are nearing the completion of a major sidewalk project that will connect Warm Springs to our community core.
I am excited to see the project come to fruition. I believe that the easier we make it to walk around town, the more likely we will see people leave their car at home or in the parking lot. Encouraging walking has also shown to increase visits to local retail businesses. Most of all, walking gives us a chance for a smile or a wave to a friend, acquaintance, or visitor and build a connection, however brief, that would not happen if we were sitting in a car.
Another chance to connect - we bring you a music series called the Sounds of September. On Friday evenings from 5pm to 7pm throughout September, bands will perform a free concert on Ketchum Town Square. The event series will provide a great start to the weekend and another opportunity to connect across our community.
What the “Big Hitch” teaches us. The Big Hitch wagons gain much of their stability through being connected as they navigate each street corner. They work together to make for a safe, successful journey. As a City, there is much we can learn from the “Big Hitch.” By being connected and working together, we can make a City that is stable, successful and safe.
I am looking forward to the Wagon Days festivities that begin tomorrow. I hope you are too!
