April Update

 

The St. George Business Alliance Board of Directors, has been cautiously optimistic that by early May we would be moving past this pandemic, unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case. Given that schools (as of now) are closed through April 30th, the Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel this year’s Welcome Aboard Business Expo & Job Fair.

Additionally, the Board has made the decision to cancel the publication of the 2020 Visitor’s Guide. For those that have purchased ads for the 2020 Guide, you will have the option to have your 2020 ad purchase refunded or apply it toward an ad in the 2021 Guide.  We do have 2019 Guides available and can distribute once it is safe to do so.

For the same reasons as above, we will be canceling all membership meetings and events through June 30 which include the following: April, May, and June Membership meetings, and our annual Sales into the Season event that usually occurs over Memorial Day Weekend. We will reassess the events happening after July 1st at a later date.

Alliance is pleased to announce that it plans to award one ($1,000) scholarship to a graduating high school senior from the Town of St. George in the spring of 2020. The student and one parent must be full-time residents of St. George for the last two full school years. At the time of application, the student must be accepted by and planning to attend an accredited college, university, business or trade school in the fall of 2020.

The deadline for applications has been extended until June 30, 2020. Application packets are available in the St. George Town Office, at the Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor, and from guidance counselors at high schools attended by St. George students.
