Marketing Committee Update

Local Carrboro businesses are sharing their #CarrboroLove this month. The love fest is part of @ForTheLoveofCarrboro, an annual tradition in February to celebrate all that makes Carrboro a great place to live, learn, work, play, and visit.


 “We want to take this opportunity to show and share our love of Carrboro and for all the people who make up this wonderful community – you continue to support us through this ongoing pandemic and we are grateful,” said Bridget Pemberton-Smith, chair of the Carrboro Business Alliance Marketing Committee and executive director of the Art Therapy Institute.
