Meet Reedley’s Most Romantic Couple 2014 – Pam and Jim Gilmore!
“I would like to nominate my husband and me as Reedley’s Most Romantic Couple. Well, I should clarify: Jim is the most romantic man I know and I am incredibly blessed to have him as my husband of 23 years…Jim seems to LOVE buying me jewelry and will surprise me quite often. One day at work, I mentioned that I forgot my “bling” so he dashed to Garnishes in downtown Reedley and bought me earrings and a necklace that matched my outfit that day. He then interrupted my class to bring it to me.”

Introducing our new campaign: Shop Reedley First!
Let’s get our community excited about shopping Reedley first. Let’s discover what’s in our backyard before going elsewhere.
Did you know shopping a locally-owned business directly benefits our city? The tax revenue earned from your dollars supports schools, city services, and much more. We hope everyone will get behind this movement and make a difference in Reedley’s future.
So, how can you get involved? Design a Shop Reedley First logo! The logo will be reproduced on 20×20 yard signs and decals for store window displays. The designer of the best logo wins $100 and major bragging rights!
- All designs must feature the slogan, “Shop Reedley First”
- Logo no larger than 8.5 x 11-in sheet of paper
- Deadline: Sept. 12, 2013
- Email designs to email@example.com
