WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

This March we will be celebrating Women's History Month by featuring a few of the amazing women that make Ferndale so special.

The first woman that we want to tell you about is Jacki Smith; DDA Board Member, Coventry Creations Founder and President, and Candle Wick Shoppe co-owner.

We asked her a few questions, here is what she has to say:

Q-Tell us about a challenge that you've had to overcome over the last year while working to support Ferndale?

A-2020 was nothing but challenges. From getting and recovering from COVID to maintaining the viability of my businesses, it was a non-stop test of my ability to cope. While managing my DF business, Candle Wick Shoppe and my main Ferndale business, Coventry Creations, I was inspired and compelled to be a cheerleader for everyone's effort. I made weekly videos encouraging the business owners I work with to hang on and persevere by building community, my daily "Maskies" promoting the fun and light-hearted take on mask wearing, maintaining my role as the DDA Chair by supporting the staff in every way possible, and checking in with other businesses to be supportive. The major challenge in all of this was staying positive and problem-solving instead of problem announcing.

Q-What was your favorite project or city initiative over the past year?

A-The PPE kits and marketplace. In a time when PPE was scarce, the DDA (Downtown Development Authority) in collaboration with the FAC (Ferndale Area Chamber) and city did an amazing job supporting, communicating and handing out supplies.

Q-What’s your favorite place to shop or dine in Downtown Ferndale?

A-Western is my go-to for groceries, Howes & J's are regular take outs for me, Reid for taking care of my hair, and of course, my own store Candle Wick Shoppe.

Thank you Jacki! We love having you in our community!

The Candlewick Gift Shop

Happy Birthday to our DDA Director! Lena Stevens, may it be filled with love, well wishes and cake!
Ready to party...in October...we are! https://www.facebook.com/events/269104411254725/
My brother was severely injured by a dark SUV involved in hitting another car moments before hitting my brother. This was at 9 mile rd and Woodward in Ferndale between 9-11pm on September 4th (Friday). The driver of the SUV fled the scene. I am offering a $1,000 cash reward to the person that correctly identifies the suspect, or provides the information that identifies the suspect so that they can be apprehended by the authorities.
Ferndale Pride and the Ferndale Community Foundation launched its new fundraiser today. Come shop our shirt, tank and sweatshirts.
