Dear Partners and Friends,

Wow! What a great year we‘ve had in downtown North Wilkesboro, thanks the generosity of partners, volunteers and sponsors like you.

Let’s start at the beginning- in early 2016, we proudly took the Wilkes County Farmers’ Market under the Partnership umbrella and worked together to promote the market, its farmers and fresh locally grown produce to residents all over the county. The market operates April through September, two days a week at the Yadkin Valley Marketplace.

From May to October, the Window World Concerts on the Deck series enjoyed its busiest year yet hosting bands like The Embers, The Entertainers and band of Oz. In June, work began work on a large mural at the former CBD Loop parking deck under the direction of artists, Will Davis. Completion of the 400-foot-mural is scheduled for Fall 2018.

The 12th Shine to Wine Fest attracted a nice crowd downtown, as did a couple of large car shows at the marketplace.  New trees were planted on C Street, and the second annual holiday home tour was a great success. Light Up Downtown brought the masses to our downtown shops and restaurants and the Town showed off new Christmas decorations. And the DNWP was able to help fund free horse and carriage rides in December.

DNWP’s Design Committee oversaw management of the Town’s façade grant program in 2016 and awarded $12,000.00 in grant monies to downtown businesses like the Pink Pair, the former JR Priester’s building and Ebenezer’s Attic. This group also provided design input on the Town-owned properties at 908,910, and 912 Main Street and plans on a future streetscape project at the intersection of 9th and Main.

New downtown business openings included Best Wishes, The Pink Pair, Hero Clash Collectibles, Wilkes Foods, Crafts & more, Tech Pro, and Flipping Vintage. And the Partnership gained four new board members: Amy Blair, Tom Kinlaw, Shana Bell and Nancy Payne. And board member and long-time business owner, Donna Goforth was elected President.

Our organization is looking forward to an even better year. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities, please contact Crystal Keener at 336-667-7129 anytime. We always have a need at our various events. Finally, be on the watch for a new event coming in the Spring of 2018, and always be in the know by visiting downtownnorthwilkesboro.com.

Momentum downtown continues and with your support we can keep it moving forward. Enclosed with this letter is a Membership Form,  please complete, indicating your level of support and informing us of any change in address or phone number, and return it with your check in the pre-addressed envelope. You may also indicate that you wish to be invoiced at a later date.

Sincerely,

Crystal B Keener, DNWP Director
