ized and well publicized events.
These events have created a lot of
fun, community pride and aware-
ness. Also, revenue and business
have been generated. But, perhaps
the most important result has been
public interest. Remember, people
want to be involved with success
and with winners.
"The success of these events indi-
cate the widespread community
acceptance and approval of these
goals. The addition of antique stores,
bed and breakfast and other tourist
development, shows that people
(business people and consumers
alike) are interested and approving.
This is diversification within our
tourism industry. It is the creation
of alternative reasons for touri sts to
be in our community.
"We will have thoBe who are not
interested in train rides and camp-
grounds but who are interested in
staying in a bed-and-breakfast and
shopping for antiques and collect-
ibles. These tourist options might
prevent another season without the
train from being so economically
Fairs on the Square are not all that
Make It Happen stands for. Those
are just examples. They have par-
ticipated in community planning
workshops, as well as helping to
develop professional consulting
reports now used by the Chamber
and this City, the County and oth-
"Make ItHappenhas worked hard
for this community. They have
proven themselves and they have
proven that the ideas are workable.
They have earned the right to have
this council take them seriously.
"These people have brought their
vision forward to a point where now
you must help. The Project allows a
broader scope and faster results than
these volunteers alone can muster.
If the city will make an initial three-
year commitment then the results
will be sweeping and far-reaching
well into our future. Rusk is not now
at a crisis point. Now, Rusk can
control its future by planning with-
out waiting until the next disaster
And without having to beg the State
for & life preserver."
"We sat here in this town and let
us lose a milk plant," Ike Daniel, a
representative of Make It Happen
said. "If it's going to take a 2 cent
tax hike. I'm ready for Rusk to get
above 5,000. We can't do anything
without money. And, we can't do
anything until you do something.
We would like for you to talk about
it and do something tonight."
"You have to have guts to get
ahead today. We can sit around and
say no-no and do nothing. We have
to look at Rusk 12 months ahead. If
a small community is going to do
something, you have to dare to do
something. We will be here if you
want next month. I don't think you
ought to wait six months," Paul Cox
Ruth Ross reminded the council
that the group brought in more than
5,000 people for the first Make It
Happen Fair on the Square. "We
started with nothing," she said.
Following an executive session,
members of the council instructed
City Attorney Jim Cromwell to
exercise the city right to possession
of its approximately 50 acre tract on
US Highway 84 west.
In other matters the council ap-
proved special use permits for loca-
tion of mobile homes.
