The TEAM effort:
A letter from the Executive Director: Nadeen DeSilva
Recently while walking on Main Street, I was stopped by what I thought was a visitor, who asked about the flower boxes along Main Street. I proceeded to explain the elements of the Design Committees' flower program. I then asked where they were from. Their reply was "I love how downtown Saco gives me the feeling of being a tourist in my own town". How rewarding it is to know that Saco Spirit's efforts of cultivating an inviting Main Street enhances not
just the visitors experience, but that of our residents as well.
Success in downtown can only be achieved with a team effort. Our board members, the four committees, merchants and volunteers are what make up the Saco Spirit TEAM. Their talents and skills enhance the quality of our downtown and create a rich and vibrant experience and a destination for both visitors and residents.
As our TEAM grows in "spirit" so does our energy. It gives me great pride in knowing Saco Spirit's passion will help to encourage the growth of our community and economy.
