Looking Back, Looking Ahead
We want to thank everyone who made 2017 our best year yet at The Bridge. The love, support and encouragement we’ve received since our launch in 2012 continues to push us to new heights and work harder to better connect you to the people, uniqueness and beauty of Cape Ann. We worked with nearly 200 Cape Ann businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community groups, and look forward to adding more Bridge Buddies in 2018!
Most folks find and follow The Bridge through Facebook; our videos and Win-It Wednesday giveaways nearly doubled our audience in 2017. Seriously, Win-It Wednesday has taken on a life of its own. We’re routinely giving away more than 50 prizes a week, which means more than 50 winners are discovering or revisiting local businesses around the clock. We want our videos to be “virtual icebreakers” and help acquaint you with the business owners and community leaders that make Cape Ann so special. We’re also happy to say our followings on Instagram, and Twitter grew exponentially, not to mention our hub of all Bridge activity – BridgeCapeAnn.com. Take a look if you haven’t already.
Truth be told, we really want people to equate The Bridge Cape Ann with fun, so we can’t wait to party with you in 2018. We’re adding new events to our calendar all the time. Our Left Right Center tournaments at The Elks have been a sweet surprise. (The next one is January 27th – RSVP now!) Then there’s the formal Bridge Ball on March 3rd (come hang out on the red carpet!) and of course, the family-friendly Strawberry & Fall festivals at Mile Marker (let’s hope we can match the weather from last year).
Keep your eyes open for more events at our favorite venues, like a Kentucky Derby Party at Riversbend! We have a few new venues and surprises, too, that we’ll share shortly…
Thanks again, everyone! As always, we’re easy to find and open to suggestions. See you in the neighborhood!
