FDA officials say Ferndale business owners and decision-makers are invited to meet and chat with other local business leaders at this event. “While our group name says ‘Downtown,’ leaders from businesses from out on Portal Way and east of the Nooksack River are also encouraged to attend,” said organizer Bertella Hansen.
The event will be held at the Leader Block Wine Co., on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Main Street. Appetizers and wine will be served.
According to FDA officials, the organization promotes a healthy and vibrant downtown city core. The group is responsible for the sponsored banners that line Main Street and hosts events such as the annual Harvest Festival and Citywide Cleanup Day.
