To our valued FrostburgFirst members,

From the small-town Main Street charm to the friendly customers and neighbors you interact with every day, Frostburg is a great place to do business. But this year is different from any other. The challenges our local small businesses and community face due to the Coronavirus pandemic are unprecedented.

At FrostburgFirst, we strive to make it easier to do your job by enhancing economic vitality and quality of life. This year, in response to the new “normal,” we have worked to develop virtual events and additional online promotions, raised public awareness about the importance of supporting local and following state and local restrictions regarding masks and social distancing, and provided resources to the small business community. We were proud to offer mini-grants to Frostburg small businesses to assist in adapting to e-commerce and online marketing, and we are pleased to announce FrostburgFirst will be offering a second grant round to continue providing direct financial assistance in the coming months.

As a demonstration of our dedication to helping our Main Street Community through this challenging time, all fees are waived for renewing members for 2020-2021 membership year. The FrostburgFirst Board of Directors has determined that all members who paid dues for the 2019-2020 membership year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020) will be renewed at their current membership level for the new membership year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2020). Current members will continue to receive the perks associated with the membership level purchased last year. If you are interested in changing your benefits or are able to support our operations by paying membership fees, please contact us for more information.

We welcome any new or renewing members who are able to support our operations by donating membership fees for the 2020 – 2021 year to do so. Membership fees are 100% tax-deductible.

Our members are the driving force behind FrostburgFirst. We strive to provide benefits and incentives to our members as thanks for contributing to our mission to develop and foster a prosperous, vibrant, sustainable, and resilient designated Frostburg Main Street Community. Membership supports our programs and operations, making it possible for us to focus on downtown revitalization efforts and improving quality of life for the Frostburg community. By becoming a member or joining a committee you have the opportunity to have direct involvement with FrostburgFirst events, provide input on organizational operations, proposed projects, and membership incentives, and increase the visibility of your business or organization in the Frostburg community and throughout the region. FrostburgFirst is proud to serve the Frostburg community and strives to contribute to the overall quality of life for residents, to encourage tourism, and to participate in economic development that will enhance downtown Frostburg.
