For the utmost safety of our community during this COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of MainStreet Warner, Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel the Summer Concert Series in the Jim Mitchell Community Park. The board, along with an incredible group of volunteers, continues to develop creative ways to bring entertainment and educational programming to a community to which we all feel so connected. Stay tuned for more details as we formalize our plans. We feel that continuing to be a community focal point for the arts is more important now than ever during these challenging times.
Our work continues in other areas this year.
* The Jim Mitchell Scholarship program will be awarding college scholarships to deserving Warner students.
* The Jim Mitchell Local Hero Book Awards will be given out to two Simonds Elementary fifth graders.
* The MSW Literacy Project continues this year, as each Simonds student will still receive author and illustrator Giles Laroche’s book and be able to interact with him virtually.
* Although the park will be quiet this season, we will continue to work toward completion of Phase III, the “Children’s Park”.
We remain committed to our ongoing mission to support the town’s economy and provide access to the arts, education, and a community park, always free for all. Together we will get through this, returning even stronger than before, and able to safely gather. At this unprecedented time in our history, stay safe and be well.
Donations to support MSW’s ongoing work in arts and education can be made anytime at mainstreetwarnerinc.org.
