The 2009 Wisconsin Main Street Awards were held last Friday night at the Jackson Street Inn in downtown Wausau. This yearly event showcases projects and people who have made a difference in their Main Street communities in the prior year.
In years past Two Rivers has won awards for our downtown streetscape, for the remodeling of the 1513 Washington Street building (formerly the Cottage Restaurant) for the exterior work done on the old Arvy's Restaurant building, just to name a few.
This year Two Rivers received a special honor for one of our great supporters. John Schroeder was posthumously inducted into the Wisconsin Main Street Hall of Fame for his long time association with Two Rivers Main Street. Accepting the award for John were his daughters Theresa, AJ and Liz. Presenting the award is Secretary of Commerce for the State of Wisconsin Dick Leinenkugel.
