On behalf of the Denmark Community Business Association (DCBA), I would like to thank Allyson Watson, Community & Economic Development Educator, for all of her hard work and dedication to the DCBA in the past year. Allyson helped to bring our committee together and focus on an event that we could host that would be a benefit to our Denmark Community and our local businesses. With Allyson's assistance we hosted a successful Denmark Community Tradeshow in October 2016 that featured 35 local businesses and drew in about 200 area community members to visit the businesses. The DCBA had great support for the event, local businesses donated gift baskets for giveaways and all in attendance were supportive of being a part of the event in the future. Allyson has also been very helpful with our completion of a Denmark Community Resource Guide. The printed booklet offers a convenient place for new community members to discover what the Denmark Community has to offer for basic services, non-profit groups and local organizations. Allyson's past experiences & fresh ideas has brought new life to our organization!
