I find it empowering as well as refreshing to witness citizens of Louisville giving to the community wanting nothing in return. To represent south end residents and businesses along Dixie Highway, Brian Bailey started a group on facebook: I am Dixie Highway. From this group, a movement was born. These 3300+ citizens are paying it forward by attending a new weekly event created by Brian: Random Bombardment Night.
One Dixie Highway business is chosen every week to receive a friendly “bombardment” of business. The idea is to boost the local economy and contribute to keeping generational businesses thriving. This quote from the RBN page sums up the perspective of the group: “Let’s use our power for the betterment of our local businesses and to put smiles our faces and in our hearts…We can even make this a weekly Charitable event!”
We, along with council members, David Yates and Vicky Welch, were glad to be there for the first bombarding at Valley Dairy Freeze:[vimeo vimeo.com/28441820]
