Foley Main Street Spreads Their Wings and Celebrates 3rd Anniversary
Oct 14th, 2021
Foley Main Street recently celebrated its third anniversary as a designated Main Street Alabama community. Leading up to this milestone, the program launched its first fundraising campaign that raised $21,100 (cash and in-kind) from within the district and $28,850 in sponsorships (cash and in-kind) from outside the district. Additionally, 35 businesses became “I’m A Downtown Foley Business” members. This summer, the city hosted a marketplace and a movie four times and Art in the Park was hosted by the Art Center. And fittingly, a second mural featuring butterfly wings was completed along with a butterfly garden. In July, it was announced that Foley Main Street was awarded a $20,000 grant from AARP Livable Communities to go towards a pocket park that will fund the outdoor musical instruments.
Leading the charge in Foley is Darrelyn Dunmore, Foley Main Street Executive Director, along with many volunteers and stakeholders. Darrelyn has served on the Main Street Alabama Board as the Director Liaison and is finishing up her term at the end of the year. The Main Street Alabama staff and Board appreciates her service to the board.
