Hello to All!

Many of you already know that Downtown Alive! submitted two nominations to Missouri Main Street for projects completed within this past year for awards slated for presentation at the Missouri Main Street Evening of Excellence Dinner and Awards Ceremony. The nomination applications are:

• “Outstanding New Development Project”- Nomination for Howard L. Brown Public Safety Building
• “Creating Creative Place”- Nomination for the Public Art Project

I have Great News to share! I just received notification today that we are Semi-Finalists in both categories! As a Community, we should all be proud of both of these projects. It’s quite an honor to be selected as Semi-Finalists by MMSC.

Who wants to go to the Ceremony? The MMSC Conference is scheduled for Thursday evening, July 28th and is in Washington, MO this year. If you are interested in attending the Awards Ceremony, please let me know. Cost to attend is $65.00 per person. In years past, we have hosted a VIP Table Sponsorship for 8 guests for a fee of $700. And, as in years past, Downtown Alive is unable to absorb this cost unfortunately. If you are interested in attending, please let me know right away.

What about the training sessions? If you are interested in attending the training sessions on July 27th and July 28th, please let me know and I’ll be glad to provide additional information.

Thank you all so much for your support of Downtown Alive!’s efforts as we continue to improve our Community!
