The Thurmont Business Network held its monthly gathering on May 2, 2019, at the Thurmont Kountry Kitchen on Water Street.
Each business representative in attendance was given two minutes to talk about their business. At each meetings, one business is randomly selected as the ‘feature’ business who is given more time to go more in depth about their business. Sharon Edmondson, with Milestone Hypnosis, was the featured business at this meeting.
Thurmont’s Economic Development Director Vickie Grinder was the first to present. She reviewed that the second annual Restaurant Month in April was reported by restaurant owners as a success. She talked about the The Gateway publication that is produced by The Frederick News Post with content supplied by the Town. It has a 100,000 copy distribution and advertising costs are low. It is published twice a year in April and September.
Thurmont CAO Jim Humerick talked about some residential and commercial growth anticipated in the Town of Thurmont in the next two or three years. He suggested that if you feel strongly about the growth or lack of growth in the Town that you express that.
