To the editor:
Hello Mifflin County Business Owners,
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thank you for supporting central Pa. Pink Connection's "Paint Our Town Pink" by accepting pink ribbons outside your businesses throughout our area this month in honor/memory of those who have been stricken with this disease. The pink ribbons and banners also serve as a reminder to do your monthly self-exams and have a yearly mammogram.
Thanks to Central PA Dock and Door LLC and Tammy Wagner Beauty Salon for their generous donations.
Here are some other ways you can show your support during the month of October: (in addition to pink ribbons): Hang a pink flag, hand out pink flowers to customers, display pink balloons, create window or in-store displays with a pink theme, plan a "wear pink to work" day for employees (on a day of your choosing), salons/spas can feature pink nail polish or lipstick, feature rose wines or pink drink, soft drinks/shakes or pink-frosted desserts, use pink cocktail napkins. Maybe you have some creative ideas of your own.
Thanks for your support!
Pink Connection Committee
