DMA GAB-RRR President's Letter
Dear DMA Members…
If you get where you are going where will you be? Luke 15: 11-24 James Johnson, President DMA 2012
This was the title of my adult Sunday School Lesson this past week. This is a thought provoking question for a religious and business person. Do you have a plan to get where you’re going and will you recognize it when you get there? INSIDE THIS ISSUE: Presidents Letter
September Meeting Recap
Board of Directors
I have a new business in the “Digital Out of Home Industry.” Look up DOOH on Google. I am making my new plan and I encourage the entire DMA membership to review your direction for 2013. Lots of problems are facing our Country and us in our personal, financial and business lives. Get prepared for changes. Don’t sit around and wait for things to happen make them happen. This goes for the DMA organization. We have made some strides in 2012, but more is needed in 2013. Come forward to serve on a committee. “If it is to be, it is up to Me”, meaning all of us.

DMA and Duluth at Southeastern Railway Museum “On the Right Track”
I hear the train a coming, it's rollin' 'round the bend… ”don’t you just love a train! Tuesday September 11th found us at the Southeastern Railway Museum for the monthly Duluth Merchants Association Meeting.
So trains and Duluth, GA – what exactly do they have in common? When Congress approved a North-South railroad connecting Duluth, Minnesota with Duluth, GA in 1871, the rest, as they say, “is history.” Today the current Duluth City Seal even includes a steam engine, reminding us all of the importance the railroad had to the growth of our Duluth community. Meeting in the newly restored Depot building, Randy Pirkle, Administrator of the Museum, our host and fellow DMA Member, shared a brief history of the Museum and then an overview of events offered at the Museum. If you haven’t been to the train museum, it’s well worth a visit! From summer day camps to “Second Thursday” preschooler events, to "Train or Treat" at Halloween, to the Christmas time "Polar Express Experience", the Museum offers great train experiences year round for the whole family. And for a special treat, this October will highlight the 2012 Railroad Revival Tour. Willie Nelson, folk rockers Band of Horses, Grammy Award-nominated Jamey Johnson and actor-musician John C. Reilly and Friends will arrive at the Museum on antique railroad cars (Tickets for the Railroad Revival Tour
Volunteers and Donations are important to the Southeastern Railway Museum. Sixty (60) plus volunteers log in 1200 to 1600 hours per month, and currently the Museum has been awarded a $50,000 “challenge grant” to be used for buildings to protect the trains. This “challenge grant” means that for every st cash dollar donated to the Museum by October 31 2012, the Scott Hudgens Family Foundation will match each donation up to the $50,000. And just as the railroad brought the original economic growth to Duluth in the 1800’s, DMA members, guests and City officials were gathered at the Southeastern Railway Museum, discussing and encouraging business growth in our community. Mayor Nancy Harris reminded us of several projects in the works, including the new Community Building at WP Jones, the new Bike Lane on Peachtree Industrial Blvd., and the future realignment of Highway 120. Chris McGahee, Economic Development Manager, encouraged us with news of many re-development efforts in the works around the city. So, what is that light at the end of the tunnel? It's the light coming from the bright future for Duluth Merchants Association Members and the City of Duluth, as they work together for the prosperity of the Duluth Community… “all the live long day.” Positively yours, Sheri and Bill
