This is the first of many, I hope, blogs to stir the memories and creative thoughts of our Dundalk natives. Born and raised in Berkshire (I know some of you think that is not Dundalk, but that is a future blog), it will be my challenge to inspire some of you to give input to design the Dundalk of the future.
How do we stay in the race to be a community where people will move to, raise their families or start a business? Or just come here to have fun. Now before someone rats me out, I live in Essex and have since I married my princess who is from Edgemere.
However, I attended Dundalk High and DVTC (who knows what that is?). My wife is a Sparrows Point alum, my son is a Patapsco grad, like my daughter. So that should qualify me to write this blog. Hey, maybe I should for a political office. Been there done that.
It was fun, too. I met and heard from a lot of people and their concerns still need to be voiced. The community needs to hear from you, and hear your ideas to make Dundalk a destination. Maybe for a day, maybe for a lifetime. Does that sound like a commercial?
Ok, let's get some thoughts on the Dundalk. What if...? Have you visited somewhere and said why don't we have that in Dundalk? Why don't we have a restaurant like that? Why don't we have an original largest "something" in Dundalk? Where are the visitors and tourists? What do we have to lure someone to get off the Beltway or I-95 and "come on down" and see what we got.
Can you tell me where's the best place to eat or visit? The best rec council, best school, best memories, best times, best friends? We have history, food, great places, great times. Give us some ideas to put the "WOW" in Dundalk.
'Til next time. HOOAHH. (Can you tell me what that means?)
