Happy to report: team-up with ZMA


We’re thrilled to be able to report that Current in Zionsville is set to become a sponsor of the Zionsville Merchants Association. We had occasion to lunch last week with ZMA president Carol Marquiss, and during our meeting, we were treated to perhaps the most thorough information download on the business community we’ve ever received. Marquiss is the champion of champions when it comes to making businesses known, if not successful, in this town.

Primarily, we talked about putting the focus on all the local enterprises during the coming holiday season, something about which you will learn more in our special holiday section next month.

As the conversation shifted toward her spearheading with others the coming events and celebrations across the town, it quickly became apparent to us and our general assignment reporter, Julie Osborne, that this woman is ultra-focused and means business – in a good way. Time-honored traditions of the holiday season – Father Christmas, anyone? – will continue, and there will be additions, on which we will report in the weeks ahead. Some of the focal points will include VIP Christmas Celebration (Nov. 30), Deck the Hearth (Dec. 1), Carol of Homes – Holiday Home Tour (Dec. 1), Christmas in the Village (Dec. 1-2) and the 13th-annual Nutcracker Ballet (Dec. 7-9).

Suffice it to state that the season will, indeed, be merry and bright, with a heaping helping of gratitude to Marquiss and her fellow torchbearers. It’s all volunteer work, folks, and there never are enough helpers, as you might know. Consider pitching in if you are able. For more information, contact the ZMA at www.zionsvillemerchants.com.
