The staff at the RDA is excited to announce that the City of Rochester has officially announce the Saturday after Thanksgiving as "Small Business Saturday."
Signed by Mayor Ardell F. Brede, the proclamation comes just as the RDA prepares for its first official Small Business Saturday event taking place Downtown Rochester!
The proclamation states the importance of small business on our community and the local economy.
It reads, “…according to the United States Small Business Administration, there are currently 23 million small businesses in the US, they represent more than 99 percent of American employer firms…and employ over 55 percent of the working population…”
We will also have some awesome family friendly activities like the city's tradition of saving Santa off the roof of Old City Hall, free trolley rides, and special book reading with Santa! Click here for a comprehensive schedule of events.comments powered by Disqus
