As we head into the holiday season, remember to support local businesses

By Howard B. Owens

It's that time of the year when people start thinking about the holidays -- planning parties, family gatherings, gift-giving, and maybe how we might take care of ourselves and the people we love a little better.

It makes it a good time to show a little love to our community and support the local business owners who do so much to make our community a better place to live. They create jobs, serve volunteer organizations, make donations to various groups and charities, and give a local community its vibrancy.  

When planning your holiday season, don't forget to support local businesses.  Counties with strong local business communities thrive.

Local news is also important to the health of a local community.

Here is a list of the businesses that support The Batavian's mission to bring you lots of local news. Please remember to support them not only during the holiday season but throughout the year.
