(from https://aviatorsoccer.wordpress.com) Arlington is a great community; it is a true example small town America with its classic and nostalgic downtown area filled with local “Mom and Pop Shops.” The residents here are all about “shopping local” and supporting the local scene. Aviator Soccer provides a “Shop Local” entertainment option. This past week, the Arlington Aviators partnered with local Arlington Businesses by joining the Downtown Arlington Business Association (DABA.) Once a month, DABA hosts a meeting where new ideas are introduced to help business succeed by participating in events, networking and promotions. DABA also produces several major events that attract customers to businesses in the Downtown Arlington Market.
DABA President Mike Britt had this to say about the Aviators joining the Association. “Anytime you have two organizations working towards a common goal, you have twice the potential for success. Being close to our community, the Aviators have a natural position to advertise our local businesses, in return, we have the businesses that support the demographics that attend your events. A perfect match in my book!” Through DABA, the Aviators hope to partner with local businesses on producing community events to attract patrons to the city, along with organizing camps and activities to promote their Semi-Pro Arena Soccer brand while providing an opportunity to grow soccer interest in Arlington and the Stillaguamish Valley.
