Hello Bath Business Owners and Community Leaders,

2017 has been quite a year for many of us. I truly hope you've all done well and prospered in your lives.

With a new year beginning, it's time to think about how we want 2018 to play out. I will tell you sitting in as the Interim Director for Main Street Bath and being involved with the organization for over 15 years, my hope is for more volunteers to get involved. This is what part of what I wrote in yesterdays weekly email to the public:

Folks, we are all in this together. All of it. Main Street Bath is just a tiny slice of life. But Main Street isn't a one man show, it's needs to be run by volunteers who want to see our downtown, the heart of our city thrive. How are you helping the heart of your community? This is your personal invitation come and get involved. Come to some meetings, here's the schedule . Come to some events. Decisions are made by those who show up. Ask not what your downtown can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your downtown.

If you want to continue to have Bath/Downtown Bath promoted regularly, educating the public on why shopping locally matter, events, Heritage Days, surveys, flowers baskets and so much more, we need YOU. Come to meetings. If you have feedback on something, use constructive ways to share your suggestions. Read these emails. Get involved! I know you're busy, believe me. But even showing up at events and meetings makes a huge difference for you and the organization that was designed, in part, to help support business owners.

Main Street has begun a Strategic Planning process. You'll hear more as the year begins. Help create the vision of how we want our Downtown to be in the future. Put your stamp on some of the new ideas.

Please be sure one of YOUR resolutions for 2018 to take part in that which is here to support you. If you have questions, please email, call or ask me to come visit.

With that, I wish you all a happy end to 2017. Let's make 2018 the best ever. Together.

Your Friend,
