Weekly Update November 15, 2019

THANKSGIVING..… is being fashionably late this year and PCDA is taking the month of November to give thanks. This week, we give thanks to everyone who pays for everything. This means you and your neighbors. We’re supposed to use more flowery language here (“express our gratitude to those who provide the resources to achieve the goals of blah, blah, blah”) but let’s cut through it shall we? Thanks for paying for everything. Without money, things don’t happen. Money comes into the community from products and services sold outside of Ponca City. It is then distributed within the community in the form of paychecks and then moved around in the form of sales, service calls, bills and taxes paid, etc. Jobs come from business throughout Ponca City that either make the exported products or services or provide the goods necessary in order for people to live here. It’s a great, big mutual dependency thing that PCDA does not take for granted. So whether you are asking if PCDA wants fries in the drive through, selling a sewing machine at Completely Quilted, making a doo-hickey at one of Ponca City’s manufacturing companies or cashing your social security check at a local bank and buying groceries at a local store, you’re a vital part of what makes Ponca City work. On this pre-the-week-before- Thanksgiving eve, PCDA gives thanks for you.
