Wednesday morning several downtown small-business owners and supporters gathered at the Main Street Lincoln office in the city's historic district in honor of Small Business Week.

Wanda Lee Rohlfs, Main Street executive director, hosted the event, and spoke briefly on her five-year history with the Main Street program.


Main Street board president Roger Matson served as the emcee for the award presentations, with assistance from board member Judy Conzo, among others.

Mayor Keith Snyder was on hand to read aloud a proclamation declaring the week of May 23-29 Small Business Week in the city of Lincoln.


The first award recipient was Steve Miller of Miller & Miller Attorneys at Law. They were noted for milestone achievements as they celebrate 100 years of business in downtown Lincoln.



Throughout the morning, business owners in the downtown area were called on to talk about the choices they have made to locate in Lincoln's historic district. Here Ed Malkowski talks about the Owl's Roost, which he owns with wife Rhonda.



Next door to the Owl's Roost, at the corner of Pulaski and Kickapoo, Barb Reinwald has owned and operated the Treasure Chest in downtown Lincoln for a total of nine years.

Bill Donath spoke representing the Logan County Genealogical Society, which has a storefront location on Chicago Street, north of Broadway.
