Join us on September 13th at New Town Bistro as we welcome President of the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, Jason Thiel! Jason will speak to the group about all the exciting things happening in the downtown area – now and in the future! If you’ve wondered the status of the new I40 project, new business in the area or Winston’s growth in general, be sure to attend this lunch! The lunch is 11:30 – 1:30 but if you’re pressed for time, at least join us from 12 – 1 so you can at least hear Jason speak.
