Berlin Starts Ambassador Program

BERLIN -- Visitors to Berlin’s Main St. this summer are in for an unusual sight -- a bright yellow umbrella with town employees underneath waiting to give out directions and information.

Dubbed “the Berlin Ambassador Program,” June through August will see volunteer town employees, of which there are currently 34, out on Main St. Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors will be able to approach the employees for directions around town, tips on where to go to find dinning or shopping, as well as general information about Berlin.

According to Mayor Gee Williams, the idea originated months ago, when town leadership began to realize that an influx of new businesses, and the re-arrangement of old ones, has many visitors and even some locals curious about what is going on in Berlin.

Berlin, Cambridge,& Easton are so ahead of the curve on downtown business! Too bad Salisbury's Mayor doesn't have gas money to go see why...
