SOUTHBRIDGE — The Make Southbridge Home campaign is working with the United States Department of Agriculture for a presentation on how people can make the move to Southbridge at the Jacob Edwards Library at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 21.

"[Jacob Edwards Library Director] Margaret Morrissey told me that the library was going to be offering the seminar and asked me if they could advertise it on the Make Southbridge Home site," said Rose Cournoyer, from the Economic Development and Planning Office. "We were happy to. I thought that it was just going to be the USDA and maybe a real estate agent from out of town, so I asked Margaret if we could involve lenders and real estate agents from in town who are participating in the Make Southbridge Home campaign."

Make Southbridge Home started with Town Manager Christopher Clark and a former Town Hall intern hearing about the Buy Worcester Now and Buy Greater Gardner Now campaigns.

"Everyone thought they were good campaigns and decided Southbridge should get involved in one," she said. "Chris asked me to get involved since I work with Economic Development. What we do is promote home ownership in town and find ways for other people to help promote it."
