Downtown Chapel Hill: Where the Town Comes to Life
Join us for our Special Holiday Meeting:
Thursday, December 4
Coffee at 9:30 am | Free Meeting at 10 am
For the Holiday gathering of the Friends of the Downtown, we bring you a gift that keeps on giving - artist Michael Brown. He is responsible for remaking downtown Chapel Hill into a work of art with his spectacular murals. Learn more about Chapel Hill native and UNC-Chapel Hill alumnus Michael Brown (BFA '77) and his passion for transforming plain spaces into beautiful works of art.
To encourage all to attend this special Holiday meeting we will have holiday door prizes. And, as is our Holiday tradition, please bring canned goods and food to be contributed to our food pantry in Carrboro and shared with the members of our community in need.
Gatherings of the Friends of the Downtown take place on the second floor of the Franklin Hotel. Coffee and conversation begin at 9:30, with our speakers starting promptly at 10 a.m. You'll also hear the latest downtown Comings, Goings and Rumors!
