To the Editor:
This past Saturday night was truly a special time for Water Valley. The art crawl brought in literally hundreds of people to our town. Local residents and visitors from cities all over the region were visiting, shopping, and walking the streets of downtown.
I overheard several long time residents remark that they had not seen this many people in town in decades. This ability of our town to draw people into our city to shop in our stores, eat in our restaurants, and enjoy all that we have to offer is simply without question.
Furthermore, the effect of this kind of business activity is exactly what is necessary to produce the continued economic development and job creation that will allow our city to become even more prosperous.
