Host a Finding Main Street conversation in your community. You can use the Dar Williams book What I Found in a Thousand Towns to:

  • showcase the passionate people behind local proximity building efforts,
  • strengthen outreach to new partners,
  • highlight the bridge-building role and potential of downtown as the heart of your community,
  • kick-start foundational conversations from which new projects, connections, and energy might emerge.

COMMUNITIES READING THE BOOK

 

Throughout 2018 and 2019, we’ll celebrate local conversations and efforts that build positive proximity. Keep us posted so that we can spread the word about what’s happening in your community.  Here’s how:

Follow DHCD on Facebook.  Share posts, and comment to encourage the work of your neighbors in other other communities.  Submit your stories, and we’ll share yours too. On Instagram and Twitter?  #VAMainStreet, #WhatIFoundinaThousandTowns.

Want to talk about how you can make these work in your community. We’re happy to be part of your strategy.  Contact any Virginia Main Street staff member or contact Doug Jackson at (540) 529-4879.
