Every month, on the first Friday (with the exception of April 2010) the Williamston Chamber of Commmerce hosts a family friendly event to bring together the area merchants and the community of Williamston.
On Friday April 9 come to downtown Williamston to make history in the first ever "Umbrella Mosaic." Bring your umbrellas and meet at 6 pm at the corner of South Putnam and Middle Street, which is one block south of the main four corners in downtown Williamston. A photographer will be on top of one of the downtown buildings to take a photo of everyone holding an open umbrella. Bring your family and friends to be a part of this historic Williamston photo!
There will also be a Silent Auction of hand-painted umbrellas. These hand-painted umbrellas are already on display in various Williamston merchant windows with a bid sheet at each location. Winners of the silent auction will be notified after the event. These would make a unique Mother's Day gift or graduation gift.
