Downtown Wauseon Association Mission Statement
A Personal Invitation From WDA President, James Kerr
MAKE A GIFT
ATTEND OUR MEETINGS
The purpose of the Wauseon Downtown Association is to promote a vital community through marketing, promoting special events and development of leadership in the downtown district. Our organization meets to promote the downtown area, member businesses, and the community at large.
Membership in the Wauseon Downtown Association will be composed of merchants, restaurant owners, business leaders, non-profits, property owners and advocates to the downtown district.
I arrived in Fulton County in 1959 at the age of four. My
parents, Robert and Marcia Kerr brought their family of
four boys to start the Blue Skies Orchard at the former
McConkey farm just north of town.
Like so many who grew up outside of town, we came to
the downtown area to go to school and church and to shop. In the summer we played ball under the lights at the diamonds by Harmon Field, and on really hot days we swam at the Wauseon Public Pool at Reighard Park. The Homecoming was a social highlight in the summer. Santa visited the downtown in December while the star at the south end of Fulton Street and the live, colorfully lighted trees at every pole greeted the downtown shoppers.
I joined the Wauseon Downtown Association because I believe that the historic downtown must continue to be the focus of our community. Change is a constant in our lives together, yet amid these changes some historic aspects must be conserved, valued, and restored.
Together, with advocates and volunteers from our merchants, clubs, organizations, and churches, the Wauseon Downtown Association is investing in the future. We need the support of many friends who help to make the Wauseon Strawberry Festival, the Farmers' Market, the Christmas Parade, the Wauseon Window Wonderland Competition, and the Wauseon Downtown Chocolate Walk possible. Stay in touch and join us in sponsoring these events and more.
