A new shop local program launched in Warrick County last month and it is projected to put near $1 million in the local economy this holiday season. The program operates by offering digital e-gift cards through Yiftee and buy one get one offers to shoppers patronizing local businesses. The program is only available to shoppers within Warrick County, and is good at businesses within the county.

Jasper will be celebrated next week as the 2022 Strongest Town for a national contest held earlier this year. Charles Marohn, Strong Towns President, will be visiting Jasper on October 12 to present the award.
One of Jasper’s great strengths is its decision to form the Heart of Jasper, a diverse group of organizations that leverages existing assets, transforms those in need, and instills new energy through creative programs and collaborative leadership. The town is always careful to listen to its residents and to build community engagement, but also minds its financial health with its solid Impact Jasper community investment plan. We hope others will look to Jasper as an example of what it means to build lasting strength and resilience in their communities.
