Updated BOARD MEETING Information for DDA/Main St.

Please note that effective with its January, 2018, the location of the Three Rivers DDA/Main Street’s monthly board meeting will change permanently to the conference room at our office location, 57 North Main Street, at the corner of Portage and Main in downtown Three Rivers. The board felt it an appropriate move to be closer to the focus of our work.

Meanwhile, our December meeting has been rescheduled from 12/1/17 to Friday, 12/8/17 in order to accommodate several members’ schedule conflicts and ensure that we have quorum. Due to the availability of space at this off-schedule time, the meeting will take place just across the street from our office, in the main, street-level floor of #52 North Main Street.

BACK UP and RUNNING with CHRISTMAS INFO!

Please pardon us – we lost our access to edit the page for a few days during a critical time last week: the days leading up to Christmas Around Town!

If you were looking for information on the event this past weekend, we hope you were able to find it on our Facebook page, on the radio stations WLKM and WRCI, or in the Three Rivers Commercial-News. We worked through it with our techies, are now back up and running.

The good news is that the event was a great success, with more than 500 people in the Santa line on Saturday, nearly ten great holiday activities, and a busy, vibrant Main Street! We thank our sponsors, including revitalization partners American Axle & Manufacturing, Armstrong International, and the Three Rivers Area Community Foundation, as well as event sponsor Southern Michigan Bank and Trust, the merchants of our great downtown, and all of the many volunteers who came out from the DDA and NHS to make this event a success!

If you have any questions about the upcoming, Friday evening Main Street Holiday Strolls in Downtown Three Rivers throughout December, we will be updating this page with information on those very shortly. For now, we’re attaching the Christmas Around Town program (see below), which includes information on what the Friday night themes, dates, and times will be.

Stay tuned for more!

Best,
The Downtown Three Rivers staff
