Silver City MainStreet will be one of fifty-three non-profits participating in Give Grandly 2018. It will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 7th Street and Bullard Street on the opening day of the Farmers Market. Give Grandly brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for our local nonprofits during the 24-hour online giving challenge and in person giving at the event.

MainStreet has been busy this year preparing to launch the “Stories from our Streets” walking tour, getting the flower planters going downtown, and helping with the Give Grandly event. With the help of WNMU students, Zulema Hernandez and Jeanne Miller, we have produced a new downtown guide with map listing the 145 businesses in our downtown district. We also have a brand-new website where you can learn all about MainStreet’s projects and programs.
