The Website

Hello everyone and again welcome! my name is Chris and I am a long time resident and small business owner in Bloomfield, Indiana and after extensive searching I noticed that there was no Bloomfield, Indiana website as in most towns and city's.

So I have decided to take it upon myself to start one for the community of Bloomfield.

I have tried to add as much accurate content and information to the website as possible, I am completely open for suggestions on content for the website and would be more then happy to add anything that is suggested as long as it is appropriate for the Bloomfield area.

The website does reflect on the town and imposes an image of it, all suggestion will be screened for appropriate content.

I hope everyone that visits the site finds it useful and informative, the website is hosted out of the generosity of sponsors and donations from the local community.

This site does not support political ads and/or the sale of adds for profit, this is strictly for the community of Bloomfield and anyone that is interested in learning about Bloomfield.

As for my time and the hours it takes to run the site and keep it updated I ask nothing in return, all I ask is tell a friend enjoy the site and visit as often as you can.

Thank you God Bless

Sincerely

Chris Buhneing
