Currently the following businesses have answered the challenge.
Three business owners that have taken up the challenge are "Real Green Lawn and Landcare", owner Dan Harris; "Bryant Paving", owner Leslie Bryant; and "American Pride Landscape Co." with owner Peter Richards. They are also alumni members who grew up here in Meredith and now have their own business in the local area.
Brian Allen, alumni member and owner of 'Cerutti Contracting, LLC' was also one of the first to take up the challenge, as was 'R. Joseph Dever Services', a property management and home maintenance business owned by Joe Dever. These business owners want to encourage all local business owners to take up the challenge!
