As you read this Tom and I will be the featured guests speakers at the University of Dayton lifelong learning seminar this morning. Tom graduated from UD as did his sisters and my father. We gladly accept an offer to share ourselves and our mission.
We have been working weekly on tasks in an effort to move forward with our new ventures:
Working with Carla Hale and company from the C3 Group on our websites, Facebook, social media and marketing has been beneficial. She has her eyes on the ever changing world of social media, thank goodness. We are reformatting the Rue Dumaine website, creating the Alligator Annie’s site, updating the Facebook pages for both. We have finalized the Alligator Annie’s logo, check it out below. Southern with the rod iron scrolls, a detailed gator on the move; we feel it speak volumes about the place we are beginning to see take form.
After some research, conversations, meetings and many more to come Tom and I have chose the architect/design firm MODA4 to assist us as our thoughts begin to take form. They have versatile portfolio and broad national experiences that shows their adaptability to satisfy the specific styles of their clientele with class and elegance. Their team is comprised of several talented, accomplished individuals working together to accomplish these tasks. We are eager to begin to see this project come to life. Dream big.
