Hello old friends and welcome new friends!
Our 2012 Annual Appeal is here! This year, we are attempting to raise $20,000 to help us continue and enhance upon the work we do for our beautiful city. With your help, we can hit our goal!
We're proud of our successes during a year which provided us with challenges: the City and corporate sponsors have had to whittle their budgets, including funding for some downtown projects. But change also brings a chance for new focus and a fresh perspective. There is a renewed optimism as we move forward as an organization. And we can't forge ahead without the hard work and contributions of many.
Our seasonal Rink @ Parade Plaza has hosted real live penguins from Mystic Aquarium, introduced the new Try-it Hockey program and skating lessons for all ages and is introducing new programs for the start of 2013, including a food drive in conjunction with Citizens Bank and the Gemma E. Moran United Way Food Center. The District has also welcomed several new must-try shops and restaurants. Furthermore, New London Main Street has a renewed sense of collaboration with the City, downtown businesses, organizations and residents. When you list all of these great things, you can see why we're so enthusiastic about New London!
So, as we end 2012 with an optimistic outlook towards 2013, we're asking you to make a contribution today to our 2012-2013 Annual Appeal. With the continuing support of generous donors like you, New London Main Street can continue its mission to preserve, enhance, and promote our downtown. Can we count on your help?

Thank you for supporting New London Main Street!
