Main Street McMinnville has announced its new executive director.
Jennifer Flatt Meredith said that through her work with the Warren County Chamber of Commerce, she came to get involved with Main Street McMinnville. She said that her goal is to further strengthen and grow the community.
“To continue to help McMinnville flourish and grow,” Meredith said. “But honestly, some of it is to create more events to bring people downtown. I’m also wanting to work on our marketing and work on how we are perceived so people know who we are and what we do.”
Meredith said that she moved back to McMinnville this past year. She said that as an event planner at heart, she wanted to use her talents and passion to create things that can bring the community together.
Meredith said that right now she’s working with the organization to plan the 2022 year. She said they are currently working on a “Taste of Downtown” event for April as well as their Main Street Live summer concert series.
“There were just so many things that had to get canceled the last couple of years,” “And we’re just really looking forward to doing those. It’s great, it’s fun, and it makes you feel, you know alive, again that we get to do some of these fun things together as a community. And a lot of these things are outside we’ll still have plenty of spacing and things like that. But it’s really just a lot of fun, and exciting to be able to do things like this again for the city.”
