Main Street gets moving

“What Main Street needs is an advocate — a leader. That’s where you come in. Main Street needs you and your voice.”
Burt encouraged those in attendance to sign up for one of four committees based on four points she deemed as keys to success for the Main Street program — organization, promotion, design and economic restructuring.
“We need each of you to sign up and join the organization, promotion, design on economic restructuring committee,” Burt said. “The way this is going to get done is by your volunteer efforts, but together we can do this.”

Will it be ’Spoon?

“These decisions are very difficult to make and are not made without careful consideration of all of the facts and implications,” Dooley said. “We are grateful for the loyal and dedicated service that Chris has given to the program over the last decade.”
