A great day on Main Street!

Saturday 10 September dawned sunny and the day started early for many as a steady stream of motivated buyers made their way down the Grande Allée to the Deschâtelets building and the CAG Second-Hand Furniture Sale. Buyers left with trunk loads of chairs, bookcases and other assorted items, others rented trucks, some got more creative and used bikes and skateboards to get their purchases home!

At around 10:00 a.m. the Main Street businesses came alive on the street and there was much to enjoy on Main Street. The new wide sidewalks, bicycle tracks and people!

Main Street may not be completely re-opened but the end definitely feels in sight and it feels good!
