Length of Involvement with DOWNTOWNDALLAS: member for 3 years, 8 months on the board
What committees or task forces are you currently involved in with DOWNTOWNDALLAS?: Annual meeting committee and working on some forum sponsorships.
What is your favorite spot Downtown?: That is a tough one; there are so many… My newest favorite is the Winspear, oldest favorites are the Dallas Public Library and Neiman’s… especially at Christmas, Stephen Pyles dinner and wine tasting!
What is one thing you would like to add to Downtown?: Grocery shopping for those making Downtown their home. I know it is a chicken or egg situation where the stores are waiting for the population and vice versa
What is your favorite memory Downtown?: As a child in the 50’s riding the bus with my Grandmother to the library and then to the soda fountain at H.L. Greens. Going downtown at night during Christmas and looking at all the window displays. As a teenager, dressing up and going to the Zodiac room with my mom and girlfriends; we thought we were so grown up! Special occasion dates at the Ports O’ Call at the top of the Southland Life Building. And then there was learning to drive in 1967. Our Drivers Ed teacher took us downtown and said, “If you can drive here, you can drive anywhere in the world”!
Why is it important to you to be a member of DOWNTOWNDALLAS?: To support others who are working to help preserve the legacy of the downtown area while planning for future growth that will maintain its prominence as a global destination. Although Atmos Energy is not located Downtown, we definitely believe the mantra, “So Goes Downtown, So Goes Dallas”. We understand it is vital that we support the health of the Downtown area and the City of Dallas and, it’s just the right thing to do!
