The Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs (OCRA), which administers the statewide Indiana Main Street program, released its list of Indiana Main Street award winners yesterday.
Develop New Albany board members previously contributed nominations, and so of course I was aware that Bank Street Brewhouse was under consideration, but color me completely astonished: We've been selected as the Indiana Main Street Business of the Year.
Jeffersonville Main Street also was recognized for its wine and retail walk, and deservedly so, and two of its board members have been recognized for their service.
Wow. The awards ceremony is in Indianapolis at the Statehouse next Friday, and Rich, to answer your question -- I do own a suit, you know, and actually wore it once last year.
Thanks to everyone who had anything to do with this. It's an honor, and quite flattering.
