From our Main St. to Yours... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ~ The Historic Downtown Hartselle Merchants.
Merry Christmas to the Main Street Alabama staff and their families, and to all the cities across the state!!! You have made this a year to be merry about. And lastly to a very special lady who is near and dear to you. I came across an old letter, that I wanted to share: 'Twas the night before Christmas & all through the town not a person was stirring, not even the town clown. But behold, just whom do we happen to meet-- a groovy young lady they call "Mary Mainstreet"! Quick as a flash she went spreading good cheer, wishing"Merry Christmas & Happy New Year"! This little tale is true of you, Mary. What a wonderful year we've had with you at the helm! Merry Christmas and "Thank You" from all of us.' -the Emporia, KS Main Street Board of Directors, 2000 I thought this epitomizes how hard she works for "Her City(s)", and how much she is appreciated and loved.
