Ladies Night Out in Saline

The weather is finally turning bright and sunny and “spring-y,” and that means it’s time for Saline Main Street’s Ladies Night Out Spring Fling! It all happens next Thursday, April 24, 3:00 – 9:00 PM.

LNO Spring Fling Hi ResSaline Main Street and the Saline downtown businesses and restaurants bring Ladies Night Out to Saline two times a year – spring and fall.  Participating locations will offer discounts, special products, drawings and much more!

This popular event gives women the opportunity to stroll downtown, shop in their favorite stores (and maybe even find some new favorites), dine with friends, have a great time and enjoy each other’s company.

It also gives ladies a chance to give back to their community. The first 150 ladies who bring a donation of ladies’ products – soaps, shampoos, hair products, etc. – for Saline Area Social Services will receive a Ladies Night Out tote bag filled with coupons and items from local businesses. Ladies can bring their items to donate to Stone Arch Arts & Events (117 S. Ann Arbor St.) or the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce office (131 E. Michigan Ave.) to receive their bag.

It’s going to be a fun night; it always is! And if you’re not from Saline, no problem! You’re invited, too! You don’t have to be from Saline to enjoy the friendliness of our downtown and the fun of Ladies Night Out.

See you next Thursday!

Student Banner Ribbon Cutting

Have you seen the awesome banners downtown?Banner by Baughmanns

Last month, Saline Main Street, working with the Saline Area School Art teachers, invited Saline students to create banners that show “What I Love About Saline.” 187 banners were created, and a panel of three local artists chose the top 80 to be printed and displayed on our downtown light poles in April and May.

To celebrate the artwork of all 187 students and to honor those whose work was chosen, Saline Main Street will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, April 16.

WHEN:          Wednesday, April 16, 2014
TIME:            5:30 PM
PLACE:         Four Corners, Michigan Avenue and Ann Arbor Street

The public is welcome to join the students and their families as we honor these artists and celebrate all there is to love about our City. Then, after the ribbon cutting, you’re invited to stroll downtown and enjoy our outdoor art gallery.

And you can see all the original artwork on display at the Saline Library.

A ‘Taste of Saline’ Thank You!

Oh, what a night!  Our very first Taste of Saline was such fun!  We have so many to thank, and we apologize if we miss any of you who helped in some way.  There were many, many people who helped make this event a reality.  First and foremost, we want to thank our Co-chairs, Ginger Winter and Jeanette Swartz.  The hundreds of hours of coordinating this event over this past year showed their commitment to help make our community a great place!  Our businesses owners worked together to ensure that everyone had a good time and the musicians, restaurants,artists and volunteers from the Saline area (including the amazing National Honor Society students who helped greet at each location!)  gave their time and talents to help make the event the success it was!  We would also like to thank our sponsors, because without them, we could not celebrate our community through the many volunteer-driven events and activities that we do throughout the year.  When you see them, please thank them too!
