Please join ~Voice~ of.Hinton and be a part of saving our community. What does ~Voice" Good Question!! It means you & I have a voice, no matter what others say or think! You can make a change and better our community. If we work together to bring back our lost businesses it will put Hinton back on the map. People will come from surrounding areas to shop, thus boosting the economy and supplying jobs for those in need of employment. As things are now, there's not much to do here. I/we would give at least yr. leases with rent at only $400 per month ai~r the first year or more free. Vendors can and will give competitive prices on products, thus garner business. Hinton should be a place where people can shop, enjoy the scenery and have fun when on a budget. I can and will give 1 yr. of my heart and soul to this project. All I ask is that those who are financially able to assist me in this new endeavor. You know it is said that Hinton cannot change. However, could we not rewind the clock and make it the way is once was? Stop the cancer that is eating our town alive? Not.Change but revitalize Hinton! Jobs would be created from all ~spects of this project. I will personally try my hardest to get all our unemployed to work in some form or fashion. Making them feel apart of something good, and a vital part of society. So many benefits could come from this. Perhaps we could even have some entertainment in the Park or old Freight Depot. I have a friend that knows the drummer for Bon jovi and I personally know Frank Privet who is known for the 10:15 a.m. Menu changes may occur due to availability of food or due to circumstances beyond our control.
