Destination Downtown 2008

I had the pleasure this week to speak at the Tristate Conference of the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas Main Street programs in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. We had a great time, spoke to a group of about 85 Main Street Managers about Community Branding, wrapped up the Gulf Coast revitalization that we have been working on for the past 8 months, and had time to visit with old friends.
I am so proud of the work that our team has done over the past 8 months, and am sad to not be able to monitor this dynamic region's progress, but am looking forward to their bright future.
We wrapped up the conference with a street party in downtown Bay St. Louis, and this image kind of captures it all!
