A time to be thankful


Go Groveport is THANKFUL!  Thankful for each day that we are given to be a part of the Groveport community. Thankful for serving the residents of Groveport Madison. Thankful for a location where micro businesses can grow their business and earn an extra income. Thankful that we have the privilege of meeting so many people from near and far who love our community and call it "comforting." Thankful for our military men and women, past and present, who commit their lives to the mission of protection and safety for all of us. 

November is the month we set aside time to be thankful for our blessings, but it is also the month set aside to pay respect and honor to our military veterans. And because of these two November events, Go Groveport and the Bierberg Mercantile are honoring all this with thankful hearts to any military personnel, past or present, and their families with a 10 percent discount off anything the month of November in the Mercantile at 607 Main St., a small community co-op shop in the heart of historic downtown Groveport.
