This year looks like it will be a wonderful year for all of us.  Things are going to turn around and the future is looking bright.  DEBA has several events in the works for 2021 along with the new VIBES coming in April (you will see more of that in this newsletter).

Our goal for this year to come together even more and show how amazing our district can be.  We have many new members this year, we have new committee chairpeople, and we have some favorite events returning.

We would like all of your help to make sure that everyone is getting informed on the happenings of Downtown Edmond, so I am asking for some help with a few things:

  • Please email me at or text me at 405-471-2348 with the name of your businesscontact person for that business and cell phone number and email.  We want to make sure that our records are correct.  This also helps us in case of an emergency.
  • Take a little time and go visit a business in our area.  It can be anyone in Downtown Edmond.  We have so many businesses and sometimes it becomes habit to come to work and go home and we have found that some of us don’t know one another.  It only makes us stronger when we know our neighbors and know what they have to offer.
  • Share ideas with us.  We are always looking for new ways to make Downtown even better.  You can email or text me anytime.  You can join a committee. You can volunteer during one of our events.  There are so many ways to get involved.

Cheers to a New Year and we hope for Happiness, Health and Prosperity for you all.
