SUBMITTED by Jerry Ashley, Lyons Main Street Program Manager (10-Dec-2009)

Our last movie showing for the 1939 Classic Movie Retrospective is scheduled for Thursday, 17 December 2009 at 7 pm. This last movie, "Babes in Arms"--starring Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney and celebrating the "let's put on a show and raise the money" kind of volunteerism--is the LMSP's salute to our volunteers that have helped us make giant leaps this first year, leaps that seemed impossible a year ago. Our efforts have rallied this village; we have shown them that we have a lot of which to be proud. We have seen this village come together to support our efforts with the 1st "Historic Lyons Fall Harvest Festival" and the number of folks that turned out for our first "Light Up Lyons Holiday Lights Parade". The clean-ups that were staged this past spring along with the flower boxes that were filled and placed along the sidewalks on Canal Street have been noticed...we have had over 175 press releases that were picked up by various papers in less than 10 months...our name is out there, you can bank on that.

I would like to ask each of you to attend this last presentation as a continuing show of support of the Lyons Main Street Program and the Ohmann Theatre. We will also be acknowledging those that have volunteered for our various events and thank Bob Ohmann for his generosity in allowing the Lyons Main Street Program to use the theatre for this most important, profile-raising fundraiser. We have succeeded in bringing many folks to Lyons that might never have come had it not been for this Retrospective. I hope that I can count on all of you to make this last showing...I thank each of you as well for what you have done to help make Lyons a point of destination in Wayne County. Together we will reinvigorate business and bring in new tourism dollars. Here's to a GREAT 2010!
