ParTee on the Green (2014) community dance party moved due to coming thunderstorms

PARTEE_FBDue to the threat of thunderstorms, Par-Tee on the Green, originally planned to be held at the Augusta Common, has been moved to the Richmond County Board of Education (RCBOE) Parking Structure on James Brown Blvd and Ellis Streets.

“We definitely did not want to cancel the event, but wanted it to still feel like a community block party. The parking deck provides protection from the coming storm and ample room for vendors and food trucks. And when the weather clears, we can move to the top of the deck,” Karen Gordon stated.

The physical address for the parking deck is 308 James Brown Blvd. All other event details remain the same.

DTW: Mike Ilitch deserves credit for bringing Winter Festival’s energy to downtown Detroit

Detroit — This is the way Hockeytown is supposed to look.

Children laughing and enjoying local bands outside Comerica Park. Former Red Wings players outside the stadium signing autographs, enjoying the limelight yet again.

And inside the baseball stadium — yes, a baseball stadium — hockey teams from Michigan, Michigan State, Western Michigan and Michigan Tech skating on a makeshift rink in front of a throng of fans during the Great Lakes Invitational.

Downtown group is grateful for support

Letter to the Editor

On behalf of Great American Downtown, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Greater Nashua community for its support this past year.

Together, we have worked to promote downtown Nashua through successful partnerships and events. We actively strengthened our ties to the arts community and to downtown and regional businesses.

We began an initiative to raise funds for decorations on Main Street through the Downtown Lighting Committee. This public and private partnership successfully raised money for beautiful enhancements to our Downtown.
