Virtual Main Street Awards set for Jan. 28

Main Street Toccoa will hold its annual Main Street Awards Program a week from today; however, this year’s award ceremony will be held virtually.

According to Main Street Toccoa Events Coordinator Sharon Crosby the awards ceremony will be streamed on the Main Street Toccoa Facebook page beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, January 28.

The Main Street Awards can also be watched on YouTube by going to the Main Street Toccoa YouTube channel.

She says the decision to hold the event virtually was made to protect everyone from the spread of COVID-19.

Crosby says the awards will be taped and then aired on the Facebook page at 6 P.M. to allow for a much broader audience to view, as opposed to the awards being held inside.

Crosby says that it is important for the community to support these businesses.

Crosby says the Downtown Development Authority will review 2020 downtown revitalization efforts during the program, and will also present awards to downtown business owners, property owners, and volunteers who have exemplified outstanding service and investment in the downtown area.

Again, the Toccoa Main Street Awards will be streamed on the Main Street Toccoa Facebook page at or through YouTube by visiting the Main Street Toccoa YouTube channel, at 6 P.M. Thursday, January 28.
