Representatives Main Street Washington broke out the brooms yesterday morning to recognize new additions to the downtown area.  Amy Vetter with Main Street Washington says their group called SWEEPs visited the storefronts of three businesses in downtown.  SWEEPs is Supporting Washington’s Economic Enhancement Project.

She says this project was started in 2008 to celebrate the changes happening in downtown.  The SWEEPs event was held for Just Desserts at The Village, Computers Xtream and Knic Nac Shak which is new stores in downtown, and the other is the State Theater because of the interior improvements.

All the businesses received a new broom and a Main Street Washington apron and a decal showing that their business was swept.
