Jan. 27 Downtown News

New(ish) Annual Event!Sifting through some old documents and boxes at the Downtowners, we came across a photo album from the 1990s.  In the album were various pictures of events past, and one in particular, the Downtowners Annual Meeting and Awards.  Members gathered for networking, an update on the Association and an awards presentation.  We thought why not bring that tradition back!?
February 23, we’ll be hosting the Downtowners Annual Social and Awards at BAGA (Bismarck Art & Galleries Association).  We’re also starting another new yearly tradition at this event, two new recognition awards.  The Downtown Bismarck Volunteer of the Year Award, and the June & Jim Thompson Downtown Leadership Award.  Each year we’ll honor two of our members with these awards and celebrate the harding working folks that make Downtown Bismarck the thriving core of the community.
There will be great food, drinks, door prizes, and music!  Our Art & Wine Walk 2014 Artist winners The Flea Bitten Tramps will be rocking this social the Downtown way.  Tickets for the event can be purchased here, as well as group event sponsorships.Tickets:
Join us for a night of fun and celebrating the progress our members have made revitalizing Downtown Bismarck.
Oh, and we also found this awesome Downtowners jean shirt circa the 1990s…. see below.  🙂
