Paint What Matters with Benjamin Moore, yes, Ellicott City Matters

20 05 2014

You may remember the huge Benjamin Moore Campaign last year, Paint What Matters.  Because so many wonderful people helped spread the word and voted, Ellicott City’s Main Street was one of the 20 Main Streets that will get painted!

This will be a brief blogpost, but I wanted to let you know that the work has begun. 🙂  Following, are a few photos from this morning.  I will continue blogging and sharing pictures, as  much as possible.

Joel, from Definition Painting Services, Inc, is a talented, detail-oriented and organized contractor.  He and his team have the pleasure of Painting What Matters!  We are thrilled to have them in town!

Columbia Paint Co. is supplying the paint for our beautiful buildings.  Please consider visiting them when you are in need of quality paint products!

FYI, there will be a kick-off event tomorrow. Here is the info for that:

You are invited to join County Executive Ken Ulman, Councilmember Courtney Watson and representatives of Benjamin Moore for a “first strokes” kick-off of the Paint Main Street initiative.

This event is being held on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 10:30 in front of the B&O Museum. Hopefully, you can join in to initiate this exciting effort to add color and brightness to the historic downtown. Thank you for participating in Benjamin Moore’s Paint Main Street. We look forward to seeing you on May 21.

I wanted to send a special thank you to Kelli Fitzsimmons-Myers of A Journey from Junk for bringing Benjamin Moore’s campaign to the attention of our awesome historic town.  Because of her, we all jumped in and rallied votes and support! Thank you, Kelli!

I also would like to thank the shoppers and store owners who participated in this video!  You helped rally the votes and I appreciate that!
