Well good Saturday morning once again from Fort Payne Main Street! I trust everyone is having a blessed spring. There is very busy calendar of events heading our way so be sure and check our Facebook page for our schedule.
I have been informed by farmers because of the cold spring we are delaying the start of our Fort Payne Main Street Farmers Market. I trust these fine stewards of the land so we are pushing it back until Saturday May 26th. I know everyone loves our local farmers and what they bring to us so when it does get here we will be blessed. We are having some Main Street Farmers Market T-Shirts designed that you can purchase to help advertise our market so be on the lookout for those soon. Please also remember that we are moving our farmers market to The Rotary Pavillion.
We had another great installment of Radiovizions this past Thursday night. Russell and his team brought Fort Payne the talents of James Roberts and as always it was a great show. Let me encourage everyone that loves live music check out the next Radiovizions, they are always the first and third Thursday night of each month. Well folks tonight is our first Third Saturday Sunset Cruise In, please come experience it!
I had the extreme pleasure of being asked to volunteer at a very special event a week ago. It was the 10th anniversary of Race to Embrace and I have to tell you it was a joyful, humbling and wonderful experience. This was a great testament of community and love for some wonderful people, thanks to the Optimist Club, The Times Journal to all the volunteers that make this happen and I will be back next year. Thanks Brian Baine for asking to come be a part of it!
Fort Payne Main Street is putting together our first Main Street discount card featuring the merchants of our historic downtown district. These will benefit Main Street and our downtown merchants.
The good feelings and progressive growth of our downtown is more evident every day and I cannot help but to be encouraged by what is going on. The old saying that a rising tide raises all ships. Fort Payne Main Street is about the preservation, restoration of Fort Payne, Alabama’s historic district. It is a great experience to see this happening to our town.
