April is supposed to be the month of showers, but May took that title this year. Neither the lawns nor the locals have been complaining, however, as the community of Hailey is looking lush as May gives way to June.
The May Business After Hours (BAH) was held next to Zions Bank in the courtyard of the Meriwether Building. The rain that day was nice enough to hold off until after the well-attended festivities came to a close. Hundreds of locals gathered together to enjoy food from Jersey Girl—the cookies and wraps were huge hits—fresh local beer from the Sun Valley Brewery and another impressive business card raffle.
Locally Owned Radio co-hosted the event along with Zions Bank and prizes were provided by Wildflower, The Feathered Flip, Nelson Auto Service, Pioneer Title, Stinker Stores, Christopher and Company, Zions Bank, and the grand prize was a $1,500 advertising package from Locally Owned Radio.
Clockwise: Leisa Hollister of Locally Owned radio and her daughter, Maya; The wraps–and cookies–from Jersey Girl were big hits; The I Love Hailey Truck Raffle is set to make some lucky person’s $25 dream come true; Nancy Glick of Centerlyne won the Business Card Raffle grand prize of $1,500 in advertising on Locally Owned Radio.
Hawley Graphics hosted the May Wake Up Hailey (WUH). A friendly crowd enjoyed food from Rasberrys and fresh joe from Hailey Coffee Company. The big news of the event was that Andy Hawley shared an update of the “Welcome to Hailey” sign he’s working on. The Hawley Graphics design for the sign was not only selected as the best during the locally held contest, but his bid to make it also turned out to be the best. It should be installed sometime in June.
Hawley Graphics was also kind enough to donate a tear-drop banner that reads “Wake Up Hailey” on it to help lessen our use of balloons for such events.
Hawley Graphics and Art Studio on Bullion Street was a great place to host wake Up Hailey; Rasberry’s supplied tasty treats to help start the morning right; Local business leaders always enjoy our Wake Up Hailey events; Look for our new banner announcing Wake Up Hailey on the second Tuesday morning of every month!
June’s WUH will be hosted by Washington Federal on Tuesday morning, June 9th, from 9 to 10 am. The June BAH will be hosted by the City of Hailey, next to the Library on Thursday, June 18th, from 5 to 7 pm. We hope to see you all there!
