President Franklin Roosevelt let the taps flow in 1933 hoping to grow industry and create jobs. In 2012, Mayflower Brewing Company is creating jobs as it expands.
During the height of the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt signed an amendment that effectively ended the Nineteenth Amendment prohibiting the manufacturing and sale of alcohol.

Mayflower has been brewing craft beer since 2007; five years later, the company has expanded it’s staff to 16, expanded its …

Looking for gifts for your favorite pet? Find unique, locally made, gifts at Four Paws Pet Boutique.
About eight months ago Suze and Jeff Genereux bought the pet boutique on Court Street and changed the name to Four Paws, but the old name, Beach Paws, is still emblazoned on the front window, and the mural of Plymouth Beach on the store's back wall. It's come to the point where Jeff admits they go by both names. Of course, the Genereuxs would like that to change, but rebranding isn't always easy. In the meantime, the couple is making small changes to the well-known boutique. Suze is a fashion designer by trade and this is her first foray into the retail business. She's working her unique style into something for pets. The couple's chihuahuas, Tucker and Nikita, are her models. Tucker spends his days at the store with his pet parents. When …

We're excited to inaugurate a new series for our Patch Readers: "Dispatches: The Changing American Dream."

We don't think there's one American Dream, but a multitude of American Dreams which a multitude of people are working toward. Looking out across nearly almost 900 Patch sites, we see …
