Letters: Thanks for coming to learn about Maple Leaf venue

To the editor:

The Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the proposed Maple Leaf Performing Arts Center open house and presentation at the Playhouse last Tuesday evening.

We really appreciate your interest and support in the proposed project and we hope that you found the evening just as exciting as we did! We were very happy to share the concept with you and we look forward to exploring it further with you moving ahead.

We believe that the proposed Maple Leaf venue holds great potential for positive economic impact on the community. Not only will it make Brown County a more desirable and fun place to visit; but in the end, our hopes are that it will make it a better place to live and work as well.

We envision the Maple Leaf as a hub of partnership and prosperity, fostering collaboration between community organizations, town and county government, and local residents who will reap the rewards.

The CVB also would like to thank the Playhouse for hosting the evening’s festivities, The Hammer and the Hatchet for your talented musical performance, as well as Creekside Retreat and Hoosier Barn and Table for the beautiful furniture set. A big thank-you to Michael’s Flowers as well for the stunning centerpiece, and to oornj brandesign for pulling together the event program. Most of all, however, we would like to thank you for spending your evening with us!

Music comes in all sizes and styles here in Brown County. It’s definitely in our DNA, which is exactly why we are so excited for the proposed Maple Leaf venue. Not only could it become a very important asset to our community now, but it also could serve as solid foundation for future generations to come.

Thank you again for joining us as we begin this journey. We hope that you continue to follow the proposed Maple Leaf Performing Arts Center, as well as share your input and ideas. Please visit browncounty.com/mapleleaf for more updates and information.
