We’ve just printed our annual Blue Ridge Mountain calendars for 2012, featuring images of our town and county, including winter scenes of Laurel Springs, spring and summer views at the New River and along the Parkway, and autumn in the Stratford Community and on Waterfall Road.
Also included is a photo from a presentation by Alleghany Community Theatre in the Alleghany County Courthouse, as well as a beaver dam on Prathers Creek, and the historic Independence, VA Courthouse.
The calendars can be purchased from The Sparta Store and Jack of All Trades (372-6000).
In honor of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s 75th Anniversary coming up on September 11, we’re sharing 75 tips to promote your business. Also, at The Sparta Store, all prints are priced at 75%, in store and online.
Contribute to online messageboards with links to your site in your signature. Your expert opinion will add to their site and help you in the process. More people read these types of pages than you might think.
Promote events you support. Don’t just tape up a flyer in the window, add a thumbnail image and a link to your website.
Advertise in the local high school yearbooks. Ashe, Alleghany and Grayson each could be a great way to contact potential customers.
Put up a billboard. A good time to have your logo in a vector format. It can be enlarged without losing resolution (sharpness).
We are getting ready to go to press with the latest (March 2010) Alleghany Historical – Genealogical Society, Inc. newsletter. A large section of the newsletter focuses on the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Alleghany County is proud to celebrate this anniversary because of our close relationship with it. A few notable ties are:
Work was begun on the Parkway at Cumberland Knob, Alleghany County, N.C. September 11, 1935.
We’ve also added an article on the 50th anniversary of the monster March 1960 snows and efforts to develop a county historical museum.
Imaging Specialists regularly generates and prints the Newsletter for the Historical Society and several other groups in the area. Contact Claire today for pricing. Call 336-272-3002 or email email@example.com.
