Saturday, September 26, 2020, has been proclaimed “Downtown Day” by Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Downtown Association (MDA) wants to celebrate!
Understanding that now more than ever Michigan residents need to support downtowns and the businesses within by shopping, dining, or volunteering, the MDA contacted the Governor’s office and requested that Saturday, September 26, 2020, be declared Downtown Day. The organization received the official Proclamation, signed by Governor Whitmer, earlier this month.
The MDA encourages community members to visit a downtown on September 26 and enjoy its shops, restaurants, and recreational and cultural aspects.
There are many opportunities for Michigan residents to safely support downtowns like strolling sidewalks, having a picnic in a park, ordering carryout, or leaving a positive review for a retail store on social media.
