Welcome Downtown!

... And welcome back to the SDA September newsletter! To all of our local students heading back to school, and to our recent graduates heading off to college: Good luck, study hard and have some fun!

September is a big month for us too here at Selah Downtown Association! We're all busy preparing for the 1st Annual SDA Red Carpet Gala: "Puttin' on the Ritz" on Saturday, September 10th. It's a black tie ball and 1920s theme, and is a must-attend event!

Also, a big thank you to everyone for attending our August events. It was another busy month for SDA! From the "Back to School" themed Second Saturday on August 13th, to our continuing Wednesday Market, we appreciate your support and enthusiasm for the revitalization of downtown Selah!
