To the editor:
The Croton-Harmon High School’s Future Business Leaders of America Chapter is offering a discount card to the Croton community. The card provides discounts at twelve different eateries and shopping establishments in town. They are an easy way to save money when you eat or shop in Croton. Each card costs only five dollars and saves shoppers much more. The card is the same size as a credit card, making it easy to carry. “All you have to do is sign your name on the bottom of the card,” said Mary Kate Ricciardi, Chapter Treasurer, “and you can start saving money without clipping coupons.”
Members of the club spent a year making presentations to businesses located around Croton and worked with them to create a card that would offer a great deal to consumers and the participating businesses. The members in the CHHS FBLA Chapter put a lot of time and effort into bringing these discounts to the community. The card provides discounts at: Grouchy Gabe’s Grill, Samurai, Groovy on Grand, Memphis Mae’s BBQ Bistro, Bella Paula Pizzeria & Restaurant, Sofia Pizzeria Restaurant, Forty Four Tapas Lounge, 3rd Universe Comics, The Black Cow, Wondrous Things (in Briarcliff), Coach Nails & Day Spa, and Capriccio II Pizza & Pasta. Discounts differ between stores, ranging from ‘20% off your total purchase’ to ‘buy 2 sandwiches and get a 3rd free’ to ‘$2.50 off 1 large pizza.’ The discount cards expire in November 2008.
All the proceeds will go towards decreasing the cost of the chapter’s trip to the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The cards are available for purchase at the Croton-Harmon High School in Room 213 on the second floor.
