Manitou Springs is not only cleaning up from the flood damage, but polishing its image as well. Business owners and the Manitou Chamber are selling wrist bands that say ''Manitou-Strong- and Beautiful.''
The idea came from business owner Ann McNeill, who says she wanted to help businesses impacted by two years of fire and floods.'I would have loved to help out with the ''bucket brigades'' and so forth, but I think this is another way for people to contribute all over the country,'' she said.
The bands cost $5.00 and the goal is to raise $10,000 for Manitou Springs promotion and advertising. Click here to get your bracelet.
