First, a note of sincere gratitude...
As Main Street Maine‘s ten downtowns are getting ready to re-open, we look back at the last several weeks since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in Maine.
We have been so very proud of businesses and organizations, many who closed doors, very early on, before the mandatory stay-at-home order, and contributed immensely in slowing down the spread of the virus in Maine. The huge financial risks that these small businesses took to become part of the solution rather than the problem, cannot be underestimated.
We are also very grateful for Main Street Maine’s very efficient and proactive downtown groups who organized quickly and provided – and continue to provide – local businesses both with timely information, support and know-how. It wasn’t easy especially early on when guidelines and state recommendations changed rapidly.
– We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
