Good morning Fort Payne, Alabama from Fort Payne Main Street! I have to begin this weeks article with a special thank you to Jeff and Kim Hall for hosting The Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce’s Breakfast and Business at Chick-fil-A that I got to represent Fort Payne Main Street (sweet job perk).
I have always loved Chick-fil-A from the first time I had my first chicken sandwich, waffle fries and a lemonade but after hearing Jeff and Kim open their heart about Fort Payne and our area it truly blessed me. These quality people will tell you that they are honored and blessed to be living and working in Fort Payne but I will tell them we are so blessed to have you guys, thanks.
I am very pleased and impressed to see the great job that Tim Williams crew is doing on cleaning up the 5th avenue north and Gault (old Mapco) I cannot wait to see what improvements will take place in the future.
I guess while I am recognizing the city guys I have to give a shout out to Buck Keef and his crew for the new green room for the Dekalb Theatre, our local and out of town talent are really going to enjoy these pre show accommodations.
I cannot leave out the park and recreation guys that have been taking care of the Coal and Iron building along with all of the many beautiful parks that we have. I know first hand what it takes to keep all the grass cut, trimmed and all of the other task that it takes to keep everything looking good.
Well we had a great first edition of Radiovisions hosted by Russell Gulley. The talent was Clare V. Donohue who did an awesome job doing her tribute to the legendary Patsy Cline, thanks to all that came out and to Russell and his staff that makes each Radiovision great.
Fort Payne has a lot of activities going on week to week. I was informed last week that AM 1400 WFPA is going to start doing a Fort Payne Friday 6 till 9 in the morning, this will be hosted by Tim Dobson and Steve Malcom. This will keep the radio audience up to speed on a weekly basis of the activities in and around Fort Payne. Fort Payne Main Street is dedicated to progressively preserving our history and heritage.
