National Small Business Week is celebrated during the first week of May and takes place from April 28th through May 4th this year.

During National Small Business Week, we wish to recognize the incredible hard work of the small business owners we are so proud to invest in. It is their tireless energy starting, sustaining, growing and expanding their business that results in jobs created and retained, which lead to economic growth in our rural communities.
