Roger Brooks Webinar Series
A monthly webinar hosted by MFDA. Roger Brooks' 35 year career has been devoted to helping communities become great destinations, and he has learned what works and what doesn't. His goal has always been to share his knowledge and experience with as many as possible, providing how-to resources and information for the benefit of people everywhere.
The first and third Thursdays of each month will see North Main Street spring to life from 5-8pm! Businesses will stay open late for your shopping convenience. Additional vendors will be offering products and tastings. Music will be provided along with other entertainment. Be sure to stop by one of the food establishments for dinner! Each month will have a different theme.
Make A Difference Day
National Make A Difference Day is an annual community service event which is held on the fourth Saturday in October. The Milton-Freewater Downtown Alliance is proud to help organize local efforts each year in Milton-Freewater. In the past projects have included painting businesses, weed and trash clean up. We even have helped build The Gathering Place on the site of the historic Dairy Queen near McLoughlin High School.
