Today's Hendersonville Lightning leads with an article on the history of Rhododendron Lake Nature Park (formerly known as Laurel Park Lake).  As the park nears its final stage of construction, the Town Council rolled out opportunities to fund various areas around the park. So many generations have used the park for recreation, swimming lessons and community events, naming opportunities were a natural and fun way to celebrate those memories.

Summit Marketing Group is proud to continue its work with AgHC (Henderson County's Agribusiness Economic Development Group).  We recently launched their website that is packed with information about the benefits of starting or moving an agricultural related business to Henderson County.  In just the past 18 months, Mark Williams and his board have been successful in locating Tri-Hishtl, Bitwater Farms, Flat Rock Cider Works and Bold Rock Hard Cider to Henderson County.  The new website includes case studies on why each of these companies chose to call Henderson County home.  As part of the website development, the Summit team produced a 5 minute video that outlines the benefits of agriculture production in Henderson County.  We are extremely lucky to live and work in Henderson County and enjoy the benefits that are sought world wide!

It's not often that you get to work with a client that is actually older than the United States!  Lindley Mills was founded in 1755 and is currently under its 10th generation of ownership by the Lindley family.  A craft miller of organic and kosher grains, Lindley Mills engaged the Summit Team to help them launch retail sales via the internet.  To begin, they will be selling their patented Super Sproutâ„¢ organic whole wheat flour and their truly Marvelous Muffin Mix (this is a favorite of the Summit Team!)  Simply add apple juice, orange juice or any other fruit juice in place of water and you have incredible, healthy muffins in about 15 minutes!
