2021 Stroll The Streets Sponsorships Available

We are really looking forward to the return of events and gathering with our community again in a safe manner! As we begin what can only be an outstanding 2021, it is time to start planning the 18th year of Stroll the Streets. The first Stroll the Streets will be June 11 and will run every Friday evening through September 3, 2021.

Stroll the Streets is one of Boyne City Main Street’s signature events for our community – enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. Stroll the Streets is the perfect opportunity to display the friendly and welcoming community that is Boyne City. The positive image this event creates is invaluable to us all and impossible to put a price tag on.

Thousands of people visit downtown Boyne City during the thirteen Friday evenings throughout the season to dine at our many restaurants, shop in our stores, enjoy ice cream, dream about a second home – and come back the next day, next week, or next year to do it again.

While it is difficult to understand the direct impact to each of us, just doing simple math tells a great story. What if 1000 people spent an average of $20 every Friday night for thirteen weeks and just 5% was at your business? That is $13,000 in sales.

In 2019, more than 75 bands were hired throughout the season with an investment of $16,000 to entertain the crowds.

That success is because of you! Your contribution makes Stroll the Streets possible. We thank you for your past support, and we hope we can count on you to help again this summer. With your investment in Stroll the Streets you are supporting a great event, and we will recognize your support to the thousands of people visiting our businesses and strolling our streets. Please review the attached information to see how you can support Stroll the Streets.

CLICK HERE for 2021 Sponsorship Form

For planning purposes, we are asking you to let us know your level of support by May 3, 2021 by returning the enclosed sponsorship form. Payment is not due until July 1, 2021.

Thank You. Boyne City Main Street 231-582-9009

Boyne City Main Street Façade Grant Applications Now Available

Up to $20,000 to be invested into rehabilitation and improvement of downtown facades
Applications for Boyne City Main Street’s 2021 façade grant program are now available. The façade grant program provides matching funds for Main Street District property owners and tenants to improve the facades of their buildings, in order to maintain the architectural character and economic viability of downtown.
“We look forward to continuing our work with building and business owners in the downtown with programs like the façade grants that result in long-term investment,” Kelsie King-Duff, Boyne City Main Street Executive Director, said.

To begin the process, interested property owners or tenants must review the Façade Grant Program Guidelines on the Main Street website HERE and meet with the representatives from Boyne City Main Street to discuss the scope of the project. An application must then be submitted by noon on April 29. After a competitive review process by the Design Committee and Boyne City Main Street Board a decision will be made to which projects receive funding. For every dollar awarded the applicant must spend an equal amount. Individual grant amounts will be up to 50 percent of a project’s cost. A total of $20,000 is available for the 2021-22 cycle.
Funds are provided by Boyne City Main Street with dollars raised through Boyne Thunder. There is no set minimum or maximum number of projects per year. Eligible items under the façade program include, but may not be limited to: removal of siding that was used to cover original building materials, exterior brick or wall surface repair, pointing of brick/mortar joint repair, window and/or door replacement/repair, any architectural details in need of repair and/or replacement. Ineligible expenses include paint, signage, awnings and work that has already been completed.
The grant program seeks to encourage private investment through the rehabilitation and improvement of facades within the Boyne City Main Street District, to encourage good design that will serve as quality examples, and to preserve the architectural character that is distinctive to Boyne City. By improving the appearance of the building facades, the program aims to improve the economic viability of the downtown.
For more information about Boyne City Main Street and the façade grant program or to schedule your meeting with Main Street representatives, visit www.boynecitymainstreet.com or email mainstreet@boynecity.com.

Odawa Casino Presents Nearly $9,000 Total to Local Non-Profit

Odawa Casino raised $8,883 in donations to present to Uniting Three Fires Against Violence last week as a part of the Spare Change Donation Program.

Odawa Casino launched the Spare Change Donation program in August 2020 in response to the national coin shortage which simultaneously supports local nonprofits within the community, and has expanded into an ongoing project. The program includes boxes around the casino floor where guests are able to donate the change or their gaming vouchers to support important local organizations.

Uniting Three Fires Against Violence is an organization that aims to establish a network among advocates within Indian Country to provide comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence, empower survivors, and ensure that native victims receive culturally appropriate services.

If an organization would like to be considered as one of the recipients in future months, they are encouraged to contact Community Development Coordinator, Marty Van De Car at mvandecar@odawacasino.com.

Owned and operated by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, the $140 million Odawa Casino in Petoskey opened in June, 2007 and features nearly 1,000 slot machines, table games, multiple dining options, the fabulous new Victories Sports and Entertainment Bar, and an off property 137-room hotel. Odawa Casino Mackinaw City opened in May 2016, and recently completed a new expansion for an even higher quality gaming experience.
