The buzz among Bangs businessmen in early 2004 was about keeping Bangs a thriving community by promoting the growth of local businesses. During the next several months, over a cup of coffee or at casual meetings at the post office, these folks continued to discuss what needed to be done to invigorate local commerce. Thus was born the concept of forming an organization that would help the town of Bangs to grow and prosper.
And now, six years later, that vision has developed into a catalyst for a variety of activities, from events to attract tourists to marketing and promotion of Bangs area merchants. The mission statement identifies what this group of men and women plan to accomplish for the future of Bangs businesses:
"The Bangs Business Association's mission will be to provide an environment for all existing businesses to grow and succeed and to promote our city so as to attract new businesses to our area. A healthy business district will be the key to ensuring that our community thrives."
