Memories to last a lifetime…


There is something special about events that bring our community together. Like many, I was surprised by the Saturday snow day and delighted to watch all the children, adults and business owners marvel over the fact that we were indeed in a winter wonderland. May we continue to find moments that bring us joy and create memories to last a lifetime.

As we move into spring, the MVCC has an exciting slew of events. We hope you will join us as we unearth a piece of Montrose history, dine out with Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant, celebrate Easter and showcase local breweries and food vendors.
