Clovis MainStreet hosting downtown makeover event

Clovis MainStreet is continuing its revitalization efforts by creating a Facade Squad, to help repaint buildings in the downtown district on Saturday.

Robyne Beaubien, executive director of the Clovis MainStreet program, said she’s hoping the event will be the first of many.

Beaubien said Clovis MainStreet received a grant of $1,500 from Friends of New Mexico MainStreet, which will be used for paint and supplies. Lowe’s Home Improvement Center is looking to match their purchases also, Beaubien said.

“This is a great community spirit kind of event where we all work together,” Beaubien said.

The event runs from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., or when the work is done. The street will be closed and there will be music and refreshments.
