Faces of Truro Live
In case you’re just tuning in to our “Faces of Truro Live” series, let me introduce you to the gal with the vision! Jenn Mantin is the Executive Director of the Downtown Truro Partnership (aka The DTP). It’s a mouthful right… bear with me. The DTP is a not for profit organization that promotes everything Downtown Truro.
Jenn reached out to us earlier this year with a brilliant idea! What if, she said, we use your live show once a month or so to shine a spotlight on some of the amazing Downtown Truro businesses?
And, just like that, Faces of Truro LIVE was born.
As y’all know by now, I’m from Truro (and so is Jenn) so I’m quite pleased to toot her horn here for a second. The passion and forward thinking approach that Jenn is brining to Truro is unparalleled. We’re SO excited that she’s leading the charge for the DTP and think that Truro is super lucky to have her.
So, in this episode, we sat with Jenn and talked all about some of the events and activities happening in Downtown Truro this summer.
