Grayson Carroll Galax VA Directory needs help!

High Mountain Designs is in the process of getting a directory for all Grayson County VA, Carroll County VA, and Galax VA businesses and organizations together and up on the web as a way to, hopefully, help stimulate the tourist industry and make others, as well, aware of the area's businesses.
I need your help in locating the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all businesses and organizations in the Twin County area. This directory is to include the area from Troutdale, Whitetop, Flatridge, and Elk Creek in Grayson County to Sylvatus, Dugspur, Laurel Fork, and Cana in Carroll County. I plan to include all civic, community, and non-profit organizations, and all businesses, whether they work from home or have an actual business location. This means everyone from the summertime lawn mowers to the largest industries in the Twin Counties, as long as they are actively trying to make it a lasting business.
As this project will never be completed without assistance from the people that it's meant to benefit, I'm requesting anyone who is not listed in the phone book Yellow Pages, or in the Grayson, Carroll, or Galax tourism directories to send an email or postcard to me with your business name, address, phone number, website and/or email address, and a 1 or 2 line description of your business. Phone calls don't work well as I am frequently away from the phone.
This basic listing is free to all businesses and will include an active link to your website or email address if I have the information. A small amount of paid advertising space will be provided on each page, but advertising is not a requirement for your free listing. These listings are not really advertising, just a little free internet exposure for your business. Many businesses will be listed multiple times under different categories.
I'm sure most everyone would be interested in seeing the type of site where their info is going to be posted before giving an OK. The site has just been recently started and is by no means complete. That's why I'm requesting help. To see what it is and what it looks like, please click here :
There is a "Submit Site" button on each page or , if you prefer a postcard, the mailing address is : High Mountain Designs 4838 Fries Rd. Galax, VA 24333.
Thanks in advance for your help, and I truly hope this directory will benefit your business.
