This week we are excited to announce we have new leadership at Beverly Main Streets – Lindsay Barth has joined the team as our new Executive Director! Stay tuned next week for a full Main Streets team introduction, but for now – a quick note from our new

“Beverly! Hello! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be working with Beverly Main Streets. I am honored to be working with such a wonderful organization and share a passion for highlighting our small businesses and bringing our community together. How lucky that I get to do just that in my very first week – at Beverly’s inaugural Downtown Holiday Stroll on Friday! You can find me on Cabot and Rantoul streets, attempting to buy gifts for others but inevitably treating myself to a lil something nice because I have little to no self-control when it comes to our amazing Bev shops. Come on down and say hi!”
