If you are participating in the race be sure to check your goody bag and bring in your button to see if you won a $50 gift card any time before June 15, 2105.
Want to win 4 – $100 gift cards? Stop by and pick up a game booklet, shop at 10 local businesses and enter your book in the drawing.
Starting November 20th through December 20th, the Manheim Development Group (MDG) and the Manheim Chamber of Commerce (MCC) kicked off the holiday season with Reindeer Games, a buy local campaign to encourage residents of all ages to explore the businesses and restaurants of Manheim.
The MDDG and the MCC reached out to local businesses to get them involved in the buy local campaign. It’s an opportunity for us to help our local economy and educate the importance of buying local to our community. 33 local businesses are participating and have great gift ideas starting at $5 or more!
Here’s how the program works… Pick up a Reindeer Game Booklet, visit and make a purchase of at least $5 from participating businesses, find the hiding reindeer, take your purchase to the register and tell them where you found the reindeer. The business will stamp your booklet and after you receive 10 stamps, mail or drop off the booklet to the Manheim Chamber of Commerce located at 15 East High Street in downtown Manheim. It’s that easy! You’re supporting our local economy and having fun discovering what’s in store in our local businesses!
Completed booklets must be returned by Tuesday, December 23rd. We will be selecting the recipient and winner on Wednesday, December 24th. Winner will receive 4 gift cards from local participating businesses, with $100 value each (overall value for winner is $400)!

Are you a Thrifty Christmas Elf? Do you long to be unique, shop local, save money and still be fabulous this holiday season?

Packed with DIY up-cycle ideas, the shop is filled with uniquely decorated Christmas trees, affordable holiday decorations, locally produced items, jewelry, themed gift baskets, a grand selection of “festive” Christmas sweaters (ugly is such an ugly word!) and other holiday supplies. Store gift cards are also available for hard-to-shop-for family and friends. Light refreshments and door prizes will also be provided during the two-day event.With so many people looking for ways to shop local, Divine Consign is the perfect place to start.

Many non-profit organizations also consign with us so your purchasing dollars also go to serve the organizations that serve our community the most. PLUS… Its simply a good time!

It seems like forever since I had the chance to sit down on a Sunday morning and physically write a gratitude post. In an effort to avoid letting perfection get in the way of the good, I’m just going to set my timer for 10 minutes and type out all the things that spark in my brain. If there is one thing I have learned in my old age, it is there is more than one way to get things done.
There’s more than one way to skin a cat >>>
My father had a cliché for everything >>>
I inherited my father’s gift of having a cliché for everything >>>
I am lucky I have a great family >>>
I have a loving and supportive family >>>
They leave me alone (most of the time) and mind their own business >>>
I am happy that I’m out of the kid carpooling stage of my life. It’s a pain! >>>
I am grateful that I’ve been able to provide the kid taxi service the last couple of weeks. It’s good to be inconvenienced now and then, especially when it to help someone else. >>>
I am grateful for three specific conversations that I had this week. Each touched on helping others.
The first conversation was with one of the organizers the First Friday Event and about the importance of persistence and being the change you want to see. I saw great things Friday night. Good job!
The second conversation was with the new director of Teen Central. He’s interested in starting a sort of victory garden with the kids. I have a million ideas about this project!!!
The third came from the stranger who watched us carry a couch and then offered to help carry the second one because as he said it, “People seem to think I’m pretty strong”. Strong doesn’t even come close to describing him! I am so grateful that I’ve learned to not to be afraid of the invisible walls around me and that I have learned to listen (sometimes, I’m still practicing) and not to make immediate judgment. I’m grateful that the stranger followed the impulse to walk in yesterday and then spent the next hour shooting the breeze with us. I am humbled that he returned my trust and shared his story. I think he may have needed to hear (be reminded) of his own message and convictions. I’m really, really grateful that the carpool kid was there for all of.
Our regular consignors have been enjoying our Walk-in-Consignment-First-Fridays for the last several years. We are happy to announce that the rest of town is joining us! Many of our neighboring businesses will be open until 9:00 offering special discounts, entertainment and snacks.
