Born and raised in Brownsburg, Indiana, you could say that Brian and Natalie Rose are Hendricks County superfans. Brian and Natalie met while working for Brownsburg Parks & Recreation and to this day they love exploring parks and trails in Hendricks County.
They even had their engagement pictures taken at Arbuckle Park, so no surprise to hear Natalie say that’s her personal favorite. Brian, on the other hand, is partial to Williams Pak with the Maple Ridge Trail, creating an unmatched backdrop for an Indiana nature trail. “Maple Ridge Trail is a place you can enter and feel like you have totally left Brownsburg behind. The stone walking paths, tall trees and overlook on top of the hill is a place I treasure,” said Brian. “The best part of Maple Ridge Trail is it is federally protected where it can be preserved for generations to follow.”
Their community pride runs deep, and they are passionate about supporting the place they call home. They quite literally wear their hometown pride on their sleeve, and they make it easy for the entire community to do the same, thanks to their local spirit wear and promotional products company, Rose Promotions.
Brian and Natalie founded Rose Promotions in 2012 after years of selling promotional products for a friend as a side-hustle. They were interested in a new new career path and starting their own company. Now, ten years later, their business is thriving.
“Rose Promotions offers a retail location filled with spirit wear and gifts for your favorite Brownsburg Bulldog fan as well as Tri-West, Kingsway, St. Malachy and Indy Eleven,” shared Natalie. “We are also dedicated to helping clients maximize their marketing dollars. With the growth of Rose Promotions, the apparel industry has been the largest growing sector of our business. From screen printing, digital printing, heat pressing and embroidery, we have the experience and capability to handle orders from 1 to over 10,000.”
Brian and Natalie’s affinity for parks coupled with their commitment to our local community made Rose Promotions the perfect vendor to help with marketing items for the Summer Fun Run.
“In today’s world, we feel parks space is vital in every community. From community programming to trail systems to open space, we feel the efforts of the Parks Foundation of Hendricks County are critical for community attraction, mental health benefits and social opportunities,” said Natalie. “We wanted to support the Summer Fun Run specifically because we feel that these social opportunities bring so many positives to our community. Encouraging families and friends to get out and explore the different green spaces we have in Hendricks County is an essential community impact that the Parks Foundation offers.”
Brian and Natalie both attended Brownsburg High School. Brian graduated from Ball State University, and Natalie graduated from Marian University. They have two children, Skyler (age 13) and Lucy (age 10), and they will celebrate 15 years of marriage this year.
In addition to designing and producing the Summer Fun Run t-shirt, Rose Promotions recently launched a pop-up shop filled with Summer Fun Run promotional items. And the best part is that a percentage of the proceeds will be donated back to PFOHC. Be sure to check out the online pop-up shop, and you’ll also want to visit the Rose Promotions brick-and-mortar store on Main Street in Brownsburg!
