I’m writing to personally thank the newly formed Johnston Association of Merchants, for the festive fall décor throughout downtown Johnston. With this season’s addition the welcome mats were rolled out not only for Johnston’s tourists but also our neighbors here in town and throughout the county. I’d like to thank the following Johnston Association of Merchants members: Tidwell Jewelry, Julia’s Alterations, Possibilities, Satcher Ford, Maxwell & Halford, Chris Hairstyling, Los Tapatios, YSS Antiques, and I would like to especially thank Ginger Lynn and Tammy Satcher at Pink Willow. As a Councilman and neighbor of this town, I appreciate and welcome the initiative J.A.M members took to beautify our town. I can’t wait to see what they have in store next. Thank you for reading.
