Tips On How To Engage In Your Local Community

How to Engage Your Local Community

By Fairfax Scoops

This weekend we came across a fantastic community sign in one of the best locally made ice cream stores in Northern California - Fairfax Scoops. The sign was simple, displayed next to one of the inside tables, and for a little sign it has a tremendously lasting impact. Given Fireclay Tile's interest in supporting our local community and on manufacturing locally, we thought these tips for engaging with your local community are fantastic!
