20 Jul Let’s Go 860! – #Let’sGo860
Have you heard about the Let’s Go 860 movement?!
#LETSGO860 is a collaborative of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, Northeastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce, Windham Region Chamber of Commerce, Greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, and Old Saybrook Chamber of Commerce. In kind sponsors: The Day , Eighty Six Media, Miranda Creative, Hall Communications, Full Power Radio, Cumulus Media, Critical Signs, plus many other volunteers and community advocates.
Let’s Go 860 is a collaborative effort whose purpose is to highlight all of the great local spots that are open for business. The past few months have been difficult for many local businesses in our area, but our community has learned, adapted, and reopened. The pandemic may have begun way back in the winter, but summer in Connecticut has arrived, and we’re rediscovering all the incredible places that make the 860 an awesome place to live, work and play.
“There was such a doom and gloom atmosphere,” says Donna Yother of Sava Insurance, a member of the Let’s Go 860 marketing subcommittee. “We wanted to create some excitement that we are going to be OK in this community.”
