Dear Future Atlantean,
It’s great to know that you are interested in my hometown, Atlanta, Texas! As president of the Atlanta
Area Chamber of Commerce, I have a vested interest in welcoming you to our cozy East Texas
town. Specifically, I want to tell you about the "Shop Atlanta First" Campaign.
Since I know that you will be visiting us soon, I do not want to waste any time in introducing
you to a bit of Atlanta culture.. When you visit, or move to Atlanta, Texas, you will immediately
become part of a community that is dedicated to growing the development of our town, strengthening
our local economy, and generating interest in small businesses. Please join us as we "Shop
Around town, you will find small business cards that say "You’ve been shopped." These
business cards are also a part of the "Shop Atlanta First" campaign. Each time you
shop in a local Atlanta business, leave one of these cards behind and write on the back of
the card where you are leaving it. This will help us track where the card has been, and will
help remind everyone to keep their spending local. Come by the Chamber office and pick up a
few of these cards when you get to town.
I am eager to meet you and personally welcome you into our community, so please stop by the
Chamber office when you make it in to town. Here in Atlanta, you will find a community of
people who are eager to help each other, and who care about their country, their neighbors,
and their families. We hope you’ll join us!
