Have you Visited Lately?

Grand Staircase has been completed and dedicated. Landscaping has been progressing well and is looking very pretty. Photographers are once again taking pictures and if you are on Facebook you may have seen some of the more recent postings. The Depot Board and others have been working on the interior and cleaning up the outside of the depot. A lot of work needs to be done. We are fighting an uphill battle with those who still want to use the depot for personal and destructive purposes, but we are not giving up. A cleaning day was scheduled for August 3, 2017 and quite a bit of cleaning was done. More cleaning/work days will be scheduled. The old big waiting room is available for nominal rent. We still have some rejected balustrades for sale, old rough lumber, and old bricks. If you are interested in purchasing these, please contact Jim Chrisman 573-300-9303. We also have a nice metal sign that can be refurnished for sale. We need to move them out to make room for further improvements. If you know of a business or you are a business that is looking for a location near downtown, please consider the depot. Again, the contact on this is the number above for Jim Chrisman. Membership is available in the depot committee for $10 per year. Membership fees can go a long way in helping the Depot meet its overhead expense of insurance, cleaning supplies, and parking lot lease.
Volunteer hours are still available – cleaning, scraping windows, etcetera. If you cannot invest a lot of money, maybe you have time that you can invest. Let us keeping working on this along with downtown Poplar Bluff and get our city updated as some of our surrounding communities have, but more importantly to increase our own self-esteem and pride in Poplar Bluff.
