Program: Steve Munson introduced Jana Groharing, Executive Director of Sterling Main Street and Sterling Today. Jana shared that SMS needs volunteers to help with the many events such at the Wine Walk and Hops on  the Rock and the Spring Green and Clean taking place at the end of April.  Sterling Today was instrumental in turning the Lawrence building into residential lofts and at this point all have been rented.  The have also been renovating the old Mercantile Building (Bose Building).  It is ready for occupancy and is designed for primarily retail space on the first level.  Use for the upper level has yet to be determined.  Thanks Jana for providing an update on all that Sterling Main Street and Sterling today are doing to improve our community.
