About BAR-3 Enterprises
Company Bio - by Bryan Reese, owner of BAR-3 Enterprises
When I moved into the Town of Occoquan in April 2006, I was asked if I was
interested in volunteering to assist with the Occoquan Craft Show, which is held
every June and September. I was asked if I would help collect money at the
In September of 2006, I offered to set up a database or website to help
support the Craft Show. The offer was gladly accepted and the Official
Craft Show website went online in March 2007 with the help and coordination
between Greg Gilker, who was the Director of the Occoquan Craft Show at that
time; Leo Smith,
then a town council member and the liaison between the Town Counsel and the Craft
Show; and myself as webmaster of the new Craft Show Website.
While the Craft Show Website successfully provided needed information
about the show, Occoquan is a small town with around a 100 or so small
merchants, many of whom did not have their own websites and merchant
organizations which at the time did not have a web presence. So, in
July of 2007, BAR-3 Enterprises was established to help provide that web
presence to the merchants of Historic Occoquan.
The landmark site, HistoricOccoquan.com came online in November, 2007 and
was the first website to list all the town businesses, merchants, crafters,
service organizations, and Town Hall events. Since then,
HistoricOccoquan.com has added new features such as providing monthly
listings of town events, pictures of those events, and widgets and RSS feeds
to help provide information on all the town events.
HistoricOccoquan.com also provides some history of the Town of Occoquan and
will continue to provide information on Occoquan and expand in technological
offerings and town history.
In addition to maintaining and supporting the Official
OccoquanCraftShow.com and HistoricOccoquan.com, BAR-3 Enterprises provides
website services to merchants and businesses in the town. So far over,
a dozen websites have been developed in this endeavor.
