Chris Hoegle is the proprietor of Treehouse Fitness.  Chris has been a personal trainer for 5 years and she does one on one training as well as small group and Functional Fitness.  Chris hopes to begina Mother and Baby fitness program in the future.  Chris looks forward to getting involved with the Bridgewater Community Development Corporation.

Finally, Michael and Lisa Blackburn are the owners of CinnaRoasted Almonds.  Cinnamon Roasted Almonds are an age old snack thought to have been originated by Bavarian Germans in the middle ages.  The recipe contained only three simple yet perfect ingredients.  That is why CinnaRoasted decided long ago to stick to that delicious medley of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla.

The Bridgewater Community Development Corporation is dedicated to renewing and sustaining its central business district and its nearby residential areas.  Through its development committee, in cooperation with the community at large, the BCDC seeks to revitalize its business areas by utilitzing the Main Street Approach for downtown revitalization.
