Our History


Founded in 2013, Living Local is focused on providing the resources local businesses need to thrive, and in turn contribute back to their communities. Emphasizing networking strategies through various social media, Living Local looks to engage businesses within the community through special events planning and web directory listings. Our mission, To "Eat. Shop. Live", reinforces our local pride, and the economic commitment we share in our communities. Local businesses are the tapestry of our lives in small towns and we need, with our customers, to keep local businesses vital.

We invite you to attend and participate in one of our monthly meetings. Your insight and support are the necessary ingredients to the success and continued growth of the Living Local mission. Monthly meetings are held at various local businesses at 8 am, with dates and locations posted here on this website. In addition, notes from each meeting are shared here on this website to ensure active communication among all Living Local members. Each meeting provides an unique opportunity to network and advertise with local entrepreneurs.
