Venice MainStreet has an amazing group of volunteers called the Downtowners. During the 2010 – 2011 Season, the Downtowners successfully ran two outreach programs. One program has volunteers walking the Avenues and talking with visitors about Venice and all it has to offer, answering questions and giving recommendations. The second program is more of the same (talking with visitors, answering questions, making recommendations), with the volunteers working out of the kiosk in Centennial Park. The Downtowners also assisted Venice MainStreet with the successful trolley service this past season. The trolley service was a partnership between Venice MainStreet and over forty merchants, restaurants, and community members. Downtowners would ride the trolley and assist riders with any questions they may have about Venice. We also utilize volunteers in our office. Without this amazing group of volunteers, Venice MainStreet could not live up to its mission of preserving and enhancing a quality environment in downtown Venice.
