Savoring Smithfield


The Smithfield Economic Development Commission is pleased to invite you to participate in the upcoming Savoring Smithfield event.  Businesses are an important part of our community and we are always looking for ways to enhance and promote them.  The Savoring Smithfield and Shop Smithfield will feature a passport-type brochure, which will be available for purchase by consumers for $15.00.  It can be purchased either online or in person at the Smithfield Town Hall (Town Planner’s Office) or the Smithfield Senior Center starting October 28th.  The passport will include up to 25 restaurants and small businesses in town that will offer promotions, discounts and/or giveaways.  When a consumer redeems the participating business promotion they will receive a Savoring Smithfield sticker in their passport.  Consumers will have two months, November and December, in which to patronize participating businesses and have the passports filled with as many stickers as possible.

We chose these two months for Savoring Smithfield to incorporate Small Business Saturday which is November 26th.  Not only are we promoting our participating restaurants but we also want to encourage consumers to “Shop Smithfield” and visit the numerous small businesses in town.   In addition to the business participants’ offers, consumers will have the opportunity to earn a crystal apple from the Apple Trails event, which is currently in progress on our scenic conservation and land trust trails.  Upon earning 10 or more passport stickers, qualifying passports can be turned in at the Smithfield Town Hall for their free crystal apple.

Please contact Mike Phillips (233-1017) or Linda Conti-Bovis if you have any questions or need additional information regarding this event.

Smithfield Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force 

 

Smithfield Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force 

 

 

 


On April 20, 2021 the Smithfield Town Council created the Smithfield Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force with a vision of a dynamic community embracing its future while respecting its past with core values of civility, sustainability, diversity, inclusivity through full participation, partnership, and resiliency as a guide to approaching the work of the Town.



Goals of the Smithfield Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force are as follows:

  1. Engage with Smithfield residents, interest groups, and businesses to seek feedback on their experiences that can improve life in our community.
  2. Identify strategies that help the Town to be more inclusive in engaging our residents and businesses that will better promote unity, equality and understanding in Smithfield
  3. Work with a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultant to develop a comprehensive plan and long-term vision of diversity, equity and inclusion goals for the community. The plan should include methods of both short- and long-term monitoring and evaluation that consider several areas, including but not limited to policies and procedures, community partnership engagement and ongoing education.
  4. Present recommendation to the Smithfield Town Council on how to achieve the goals above.
  5. Subcommittees may be formed to focus on issues or subjects meriting more detailed discussion.
