Welcome Theory Salon & Spa now open at 501 N. Main St.  We are excited to welcome this new full service salon and spa to the Old Town Neighborhood.  Be sure to stop in this week.

Thank you to all of the wonderfully talented kids that came out on Friday for the Sidewalk Chalk Art Walk.  The response and participation for this new annual event in Old Town was very exciting.  If your kids haven’t had a chance to stop by and pick up their t-shirts and bag of goodies, stop by the Old Town office this week.

Congratulations to Old Town’s Relight the Night Committee for another successful historic neon sign relighting!  On Friday evening following Art Walk, the Chopsticks Café sign was officially turned back on and now shines brightly every evening on Main Street.  This marks the fifth sign to be repaired and relit as a result of the hard work and efforts of this committee led by Randy Dixon.  Thank you to all of those on the committee and those who have made contributions to make the sign relightings possible.  You too can help relight future signs.  Make a contribution today at GoFundMe/Relight The Night.

It’s already Mother’s Day and it’s time to find the perfect gift to thank Mom for all she does.  From gift certificates to fine art and jewelry, the shops, salons, spas and restaurants in Old Town have that perfect gift.  Come shop this week!
