D.B. Cox Family Celebration May 4, 2013
Our Downtown District has had much to celebrate in the past few weeks, and the Ashland Main Street Association has been fortunate enough to participate in many of the events.
Many thanks to all that participated in the 4th Annual Ashland Chalk Walk
and a special thank you to our sponsors. Click HERE

Our joint venture with the Ashland Museum in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the D.B. Cox Department Store Building
was fantastic! Hats off to the Iron Horse restaurant
which catered the event in grand style. Click HERE

We helped celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Companion Extraordinaire
â€“ one of our most successful downtown businesses. At the companyâ€™s gala open house celebration on May 16th, Main Street presented a framed copy of our latest Downtown District Map to owner Dawn Beninghove. Find out more about Dawn and her wonderful organization at http://cenninc.com

Likewise, we presented a framed Downtown District Map to Dr. Tara Bath at Stepping Stone Chiropractic
, which held its â€œRe-Grand Openingâ€ on May 22nd at its new location in Ashland Town Center.

Stepping Stoneâ€™s move from 112 Thompson St. allowed the Hanover Herald-Progress to reassume its rightful place in its downtown namesake building. Weâ€™ll be celebrating the H-Pâ€™s homecoming in the next few weeks. We look forward to celebrating the anniversary of our newest business, TRAIN TOWN CROSSFIT,
which is adjacent to Stepping Stones.

Though itâ€™s outside the official Downtown District, Main Street extends a warm welcome to Chik-Fil-A
at the corner of Rt. 54 and Hill Carter Parkway, which had its grand opening on May 31st. And if you havenâ€™t noticed, the Town of Ashland has initiated its new Way-Finding Signage
program right across the street with a brand new sign directing visitors to the â€œMain Streetâ€ district. We hope the many travelers seeking rest and refreshment at Exit 92 will venture beyond Washington Highway to experience the friendly service and charm of our downtown businesses.
