Ribbon cutting starts Small  News Week in Abilene, a new start for entrepreneurs after a difficult year |  KTAB

Jason Tabares and Adrian Bell own Dad’s Ice Cream and were among those that cut their shiny red ribbon in downtown. Businesses who are members of the chamber but did not get to have a ribbon cutting of their own at their respective store fronts last year were able to make up for the occasion Monday by cutting a ribbon at the ceremony. Businesses that do not have official store fronts were honored as well. Tabares says his business was forced to make changes during the height of the pandemic.

“This year we were able to plan a little bit and really emphasize the impact these companies have,” said Peters. Chamber CEO and President Doug Peters says the day’s ceremony was a longtime coming, as last year’s Small News Week was skipped due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Mayor Anthony Williams also made an official proclamation at the downtown ceremony, naming May 3-7, 2021 Small News Week in Abilene. During this week, the Chamber and sponsors host an event every day honoring the Key City’s self starters and the organizations that support them, such as the Development Corporation of Abilene (DCOA), the Small News Development Center and the Abilene Industrial Foundation.

The next event up for this week of celebrating mom and pops is the Salute to Small News Luncheon on Tuesday afternoon. Peters proudly announced to those present at the day’s ribbon cutting is already sold out. “We had to change how we dealt with the community a lot,” said Tabares. “The menu did get condensed because the business did change, but now we’re at full blast again, so it’s great.”
