We are encouraged by the many positive developments happening both on and around Main Street. It's exciting to see the completion of the Hartford HealthCare Health Center and the new shops and restaurants opening, and the growing sense of energy and community pride.
I hope you and yours have stayed safe during the past year. Like everyone, we at Friends of Main Street are looking forward to a bright future.
Although our organization had to cancel in-person events, we continued to stay active, promoting local businesses, community news, and organizing the addition of festive snowflakes to storefronts.
As Winsted starts to emerge from the pandemic, we look forward to bringing back an even stronger community spirit. To that end, I am writing to you for two reasons:
This spring Friends of Main Street will once again hang pots of beautiful flowers on Main Street and hire someone to keep them watered throughout the summer. Residents and visitors alike enjoy seeing them. Would you please consider making a donation to help us have fresh flowers in our downtown in June?
We all recognize that times have changed. To address those changes, we would like Friends of Main Street to be responsive to the needs of our community. Would you please take a minute to say how you think Friends of Main Street should prioritize its activities?
Please consider making a donationto help us have fresh flowers in our downtown and, by taking our surveyand share, your ideas. Your input will make a difference in our organization’s future plans.
Thank you very much for your support.
Francis Delaney President, Friends of Main Street – Winsted
