Shopping Center Revitalization
Two articles on this subject appeared in this week's Villager showing the efforts that are being explored and developed. The stores appear to be picking up some more traffic already. In each newsletter we will be featuring details about stores in the center and how they provide you with unique services.

On the Web site, information on specials at the stores will also be appearing. Check it out. This issue features David 'Nick' Ransford, the manager of the Beverage Shoppe.

Are you Interested in Saving the Lives of Dogs and Cats?
The Montgomery County Commissioners are considering stopping the funding and removing support from the animal shelter Adoption Center program. Maggie Warner says we really need to let them know that as residents of the county, this is an important and valuable service that needs to survive. If you would like to support this effort you can sign the petition posted on the Web site and mail it, or give her a call.

He is knowledgeable about wines and spirits and will gladly make recommendations to fit your needs. He can special order for you, assist in planning a party or make a special party basket. He has set up in the store a rack of his choice 'value priced' wines. One of them is the Barefoot label (merlot, cab and chardonnay) which he sells at $2.99 The same wine was being offered at the big supermarket in the mall for $5.89
