A new year brings new opportunities to serve our community.What is on the calendar for downtown Hollister? I’m glad that you asked.Next up is our Nibble and Network on Wednesday, February 22.Our gracious host is St. Francis Retreat. We will start a tour of the facility and networking at 8:00 am. Admission to this event is free and is open to everyone.
Spring arrives and then it is time to get to work with our Annual Downtown Spring Clean-up on Saturday, April 22nd from 8:30 to 11:30 am. Bring your cleaning and gardening tools and lend a hand in doing a clean-sweep of 12 blocks in our downtown district! If this sounds like fun to you, give us a call so we can put you on our volunteer list, which helps us determine block assignments for the morning. This a perfect project for youth groups and service clubs or groups!New this year, we will gather at our office (514 Monterey Street) for check-in and logistics as the “Walk a Mile in her Shoes” event will be taking place on the 400 block this year. We invite you to come downtown and join us for a wonderful day!
May brings our ever popular Downtown Wine and Beer Stroll, to be held downtown from 1:00 – 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 6. We are planning 20+ stops of wine and beer tasting in our downtown member businesses again this year. You will not want to miss this event!(It is known to sell out so make sure that you get your tickets early.) This tasting event gathers our best local wineries and breweries and makes for a fantastic afternoon in downtown Hollister where we hope that you will stay for a little shopping and have dinner in one of our downtown restaurants.
