We are starting the year off with a fun time with our friends from Commercial Bank.

Enjoy a fun game with prizes, plus light refreshments. Please RSVP by Jan. 27, so they can have enough prizes.

In February, we will have another special shopping night on Thursday, Feb. 9. It will be a great time to do some Valentine’s Day shopping with some of the best shops around.

As you can see, 2023 is starting off with some exciting opportunities and activities. I might be bias, but I believe we have some great places to shop in downtown, and a few more will open during the next few months.

Remember, the only way we can have a great downtown is with your support.

I am looking forward to seeing you at our volunteer training next week.
