Ruth Hanus and Barbara Kelly got into the spirit of Local Shopping on Plaid Friday November 29th. They said they are tired of hearing complaints about there not being enough to do in town, so they are trying to show people what participating can look like. “Our intention is to shop til we drop and have fun tonight,” Hanus said. Plaid Friday is a shopping event that encourages buying from independent local businesses such as many local businesses you can find in the Rocky Mountain Goat! /LAURA KEIL
