Thanks to our Volunteers

I'd like to give a huge thank you to all the volunteers that make Main Street what it is.  This is an organization with a heart!  If we weren't doing this in the community, for the community, by the community, it would just be event planning.  But because of this town and our volunteers, it's real small town living!



Please call our main number 815-784-6961 or email us at mainstreetgenoa@gmail.com to schedule an appointment or meeting.  Our offices are on the 2nd floor of Heartland Bank and Trust Company
