Raytown Main Street Association

Promotions Committee

Promotions is responsible for marketing downtown in order to enhance our image and improve consumer and investor confidence in the downtown area. One of our primary goals is to develop special events that promote the area and create a sense of community. We work to encourage people to live, work, play and invest in downtown. A vibrant downtown is the heart of the community.

We welcome volunteers who enjoy all aspects of event organization from organizing, to set-up and tear-down, and all the fun in between. Contact one of our co-Chairs: Peggy Johnson at info@raytownmainstreet.org
