At the town hall meeting, I signed up for the committee on economic development. This blog is an early phase of marketing for our town. It is preliminary and my goal is a full blown website. This blog is the ‘free’ (I might add) stomping grounds for ideas that are on the drawing board. For obvious reasons, our town must become marketable before we dare push in the direction of inviting economy to choose us for a homestead, business or even the gateway to the lake.
Our goals are simple…clean up our town, clean up our town, clean up our town. Vickie Huffman would like these goals met by October ’07 for homecoming. And I’m sure there are some goals that will be accomplished. Although realistically, this is a long term project and this weekend’s clean-up event was a great start.
Where do we go from here? Without funds we are limited, but we are deeply concerned about the appearance of our town from the newly constructed highway and elbow grease will have to go a long way. Next, we plan to tidy up the main streets with, once again, good ole’ hard work, a dozer and a maybe a match. We are aware that the deck is stacked against us, but nothing is impossible with our God. Wish us luck!
