Downtown Marketplace Project Lead: Tracy Brookshier

Red chalet is ready to rent, just waiting on electric to be finished. We plan to sponsor an ad for it after the holidays on facebook to gain more interest. We are moving forward with the purchase of a new chalet. It will be just a bit smaller than the blue chalet. PLTC is building.

Thanks to Tony Windmiller, he picked up two picnic tables that were donated to us and also made some repairs to them. As well, Peoples Savings Bank is donating a new picnic table as well! STILL LOOKING for someone to assist/donate a small pavilion stage.

Downtown Marketplace Mailer Campaign:

We have received $1,700 in donations from our mailer campaign so far. We sent out over 100 letters to businesses asking for $100 monetary donations.
