Indiana Main Street Program Manager Shae Kmicikewycz met with the local organization to discuss its goals, future plans and more.
While there, Kmicikewycz offered the 10 members in attendance other ways to set up the Brazil Main Street structure.
She explained how Indiana Main Street has four basic committees under the umbrella organization, including a Promotion Committee, Economic Restructuring Committee, Design Committee and Organization Committee.
Brazil Main Street has followed this lead. However, the committees set up under the local organization go under different names.
"You have everything in place," she said. "It's just getting those committees up and going. That's something we'd like to see," Kmicikewycz said.
Kmicikewycz added she hoped Brazil Main Street was interested in joining Indiana Main Street in the near future.
"There are benefits to being a part of Indiana Main Street," she said. "There are lots of opportunities. We're really excited to have Brazil as one of our Main Street communities."
Meanwhile, the local organization discussed plans to possibly set up a new fundraiser in the future.
President Tony Harper said he had recently talked with members in the community who thought it would be a good idea to set up a day to honor former Brazil resident Charles B. Hall, the first black American pilot to shoot down an enemy aircraft during World War II.
Recently, Clay County residents raised enough funds to erect a memorial in Hall's honor, which was placed in front of Brazil City Hall.
Still, Harper thought having a day of World War II re-enactments would be a great way to honor Hall annually.
"I thought it was a heck of an idea,' he said. "This is something we could build on, year after year. He's another one we need to recognize in the community."
The members discussed possibly having the event in August near Hall's birthday and discussed meeting with World War II re-enactors in the future.
Brazil Main Street meets regularly on the second Monday of each month at the Brazil Public Library. Its next meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., Monday, Dec. 12.
