The Downtown Marion, Inc. team would like to extend a big THANK YOU to the entire Marion Community for your support in 2015. Because of your involvement in the many activities and initiatives promoted by DMI, much was accomplished.
A few highlights include: the beautification of the downtown planters through a generous grant from the Marion Community Foundation and collaboration with the Goodwill Jobs Program and Rushmore Academy; the collaboration with Marion’s First Church of the Nazarene to create Paint the Town; A Taste of Marion fundraising event hosted by the 2014/2015 Leadership Marion! Class; Miles for Marion 5K and Block Party; the DMI sponsored Loft and Church Tours; Under the Christmas Tree Auction and New Year’s Eve Winter Wonderland Gala and Pop-N-Drop.
Our revitalization efforts continue in 2016 with more activities and events already scheduled. For information about these opportunities click on the events tab above.
