North Quabbin Region Recreation Map & Business Guide
Have you ever traveled to a new location, or perhaps moved to an area that you were unfamiliar with? Do you remember looking for places to eat, shop, boat, fish, hike, bring your pets, service your car, ATMs etc.? Having a map of the area that highlights the area's natural beauty and showcases everything that a community has to offer has always been a welcome aid and a lot of fun for me and my family when visiting new places.
Once upon a time we had a very nice, very informative recreation map and business guide of the North Quabbin Region Produced by North Quabbin Woods.
A few years back, members of The Orange Merchants Group began exploring the possibility of creating a map for the Town of Orange that would have been very similar to the North Quabbin Woods Map. We identified a map maker and designer that we wanted to work with and started making plans. But the more we worked on our project, the more we felt that our project would have a much greater impact for all of us, and you, if we took a regional approach instead of an Orange only approach. So we reached out to the North Quabbin Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau and began collaborating to make this a reality for all of the nine town North Quabbin region.
We are excited to announce that we recently made an agreement with Rhumb Line Maps and have begun the process of making the 2022 North Quabbin Region Recreation Map & Business Guide a reality.
As a business owner and a community member, you are an important part of our goal. You no doubt understand the pressing need for an easily accessible and up to date regional map that highlights the many small businesses, events and attractions of our area!
I’m writing today to ask you to join us as we raise funds for this mutually beneficial project. By partnering with us, you will be able to bring more attention to your business and to all the North Quabbin Region. The overall cost to design, revise and produce one thousand high quality copies of this map will be approximately $12,000. Any funds raised beyond the initial production costs will be used to facilitate phase two and three of this project.
During phases two and three we will make large prints for public display throughout the region and create an online, interactive version of the map with active links directly to your businesses or organization's website.
Sponsorship levels are as follows:
● $100 for a dot on the map with your businesses name in a list directory.
● $250 for a dot, your name in the list directory and a short description of your business.
● $500 for a dot, your name in the list directory and a short description of your business and an image/logo and a QR code to your website on the printed map. (These spots are limited!)
If you would like to participate, we must have:
● A deposit of $100.00 along with all relevant information needed and your level of sponsorship
● Final edits and payment must be paid ASAP
To date, more than seventeen Orange based businesses have pledged to be a part of this project and we hope you will too. After phase one has been completed and produced, we will assess the costs associated with phases two and three before we establish pricing and reconnect with everyone giving priority to those who participate in phase one.
We already feel that this project will be successful, but we also feel that it will be much more successful if we have the support of everyone in the business community.
If you would like to have a discussion regarding the advantages of the levels of sponsorship please reach out to a member of our team, we would be happy to answer your questions and discuss your concerns.
