Setting the pace
The Board of Directors of Main Street Washington donated their pledges for the year all at once Monday afternoon to kick off the annual fundraising event for the program’s operating budget for the coming year. The fundraiser is running through mid-November. Money raised will fund operations and special events held by Main Street Washington. The goal is $100,000 this year, from either cash or volunteer hours. The Iowa Department of Economic Development values one volunteer hour at $17.22. For more information or to donate, call 653-3918.
