Main Street Grand Opening and Membership Drive

This is a copy of an email sent to our friends and supporters.  It also is currently on the Wilton Manors Main Street Page at  We invite you to come by for a visit and find out more!

Dear Friends, Neighbors and Business Owners:

On Thursday, September 16th, Wilton Manors Main Street, Inc. held the official grand opening of our new office at 2164 Wilton Drive in the Gables Wilton Park Development.

More than 200 guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening complete with entertainment, fine food, wine and the cool air conditioning of our refreshing new office. The new Main Street office is the latest addition to the Gables Wilton Park commercial and retail space. The office is being graciously sponsored by our premiere corporate sponsor, the Gables Corporation. The stunning interior design, furnishings, artwork and accessories are compliments of premiere sponsor, Island City Traders of Wilton Drive and their parent company Retro Interiors. Crema D' Roma provided scrumptious appetizers and the Naked Grape offered complimentary fine wines. Panache Style, formerly Petals Panache owner Bobby Kyser provided gorgeous flower arrangements with exceptional artistic flair.  A huge thank you to all of our sponsors.

Main Street's new office is just another example of the community support and enthusiasm that is being generated by the hard work of the Main Street Board and volunteers.  As a non-profit organization, Wilton Manors Main Street is a member of the national Main Street organization. Like so many other cities, Main Street is the vital town center and the hub of arts, entertainment, dining and culture. Wilton Drive is experiencing a renaissance and Main Street is working to make sure the town center continues to improve. Main Street has introduced a Two Lane Safety, Parking and Beautification initiative and the city is moving forward with a task force to study and find ways to implement the proposed initiative.

The grand opening of our new office also kicks off our 2011 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE. Our Main Street organization is a member based organization and as such, relies on donations, fundraisers, grants and membership dues to maintain operations and programs so that we can give back to the community. WMMS needs you! We hope that you will take a look at our membership brochure on the home page of our website where you can join on-line by clicking on the "Donate Now" link or print it off and mail to our office. Donations and membership dollars are also tax deductible and we provide you with a letter of thanks indicating your support and amount.

Wilton Manors Main Street is your community service organization and we are here to improve and promote Wilton Drive and the Arts and Entertainment district. Our office is always open to the public and we invite you to come by and visit. We have a large screen LED Television that was graciously donated by Wilton Manors resident, Doug Candler. The screen constantly displays information and provides passers by with a glimpse of what WMMS is about. We welcome your thoughts, ideas, input and concerns and we are always looking for volunteers to help with future events and help staff our beautiful new office. We look forward to seeing you on the Drive, so please become a member and stop by and say hello.
