Jamesville Main Street Visioning Event
"To those who have shaped her past and the youth to whom we entrust her future... may they long maintain pride in her identity..." -Water, Wheels and Stone, 1978

Stick 'em Up! That's right! After you had a chance to see what Jamesville's glorious past visioning has brought to our community, we invited you to "Stick 'em Up!" You were provided with sticky notes to write your ideas on and post in categories that are critical to the future of Jamesville.
The order of the day were to visit the past, look ahead, vision for your community, and to have some fun!
