Committee of Joy

What is a Committee of Joy? It’s a group of people who come together to brainstorm cool ideas that could lead to multiple smaller projects or one big one that they implement together and have fun doing it to create sparks of joy in our downtown.

Levitt AMP Music Series

We have received $90K grant from the Levitt Foundation to put on a FREE, three-year live music series downtown starting in 2023!
