Every town has a Main Street, but something very special happens when that street actually embodies its name and becomes the “main” hub of the community. On this past Columbus Day, Main Street in Montgomery did just that. Area businesses and organizations joined forces for a town open house. Live music, food samples, and friendly faces lined the street, providing a festive welcome for all who attended. The event was spear headed by the Revitalize Montgomery Committee.
