We're sad to report that Dave Thomas passed away on Tuesday morning, July 16, 2019.

Dave was a "Super Volunteer" for MainStreet Oceanside and was responsible for so many of the incredible photos that have been featured in our advertising and publications through the years. Dave created two beautiful photo collages for us that are featured on the walls of our meeting room. Dave also documented the annual Independence Parade every year, chauffeured around in a golf cart by his wife and MainStreet Oceanside Board Member Mary Ann Thiem.

Our thoughts are with Mary Ann and wish her peace, comfort and courage in this difficult time.

Rick Wright and MainStreet Oceanside staff
