Forward Together: Ponca City Development Authority
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT......was happening all over Ponca City this week. Starting last Friday with an epic groundbreaking ceremony at the Duke building all the way through 10 year celebrations for businesses, new teacher meet and greets as well as some requests for information on the phone, email and bat signal. Well, maybe not that last one, but staff felt pretty loved this week with the requests for economic info.
However, the big story this week is the GoPonca.com website with updated menu options and information able to be linked to all our friends websites. Keep reading to find out more and have "Another great day in Ponca City" to quote our Mayor.
A BIG THANK YOU.....to everyone who took time to attend the ground breaking ceremony a Duke. Staff is happy to report the event went like clockwork, with much applause and huge grins from participants. A special thanks for the Ponca City News for making the event front page above the fold and to Meeks LLC for filming Duke's special day. Check out the groundbreaking video here or take a virtual tour ofDuke here.
PCDA would like to give a shout out to our partners at Pioneer Technology Center. This is the start of a great year for them and all of us: new buildings; new programs and some great workshops from our Business Services crew.
Classes got rolling this week and staff knows we are going to have some great stories to tell very soon. For now, check out the QuickBooks and Marketing programs coming up next month.
STUFF THE BUS.... is tomorrow at Walmart from 9 to 1 pm. The goal is to "Stuff the bus" completely full with extra school supplies for our wonderful Ponca City teachers. If you are shopping, pick up a few items to donate. If you just want to donate funds, money is always welcome. This is community support at its finest. See you at Walmart.
