West Calcasieu's New Campaign Focuses on Positive Attitude

The following is a news release from the West Calcasieu Association of Commerce:
 
West Calcasieu Association of Commerce is launching a new campaign called "Think Positive. Be Positive". According to Brian Levens, president of WCAC, "Southwest Louisiana has much to be proud of: our strong community spirit, our diverse economy, and our natural resources. West Calcasieu has decided to take the lead on encouraging area businesses and residents to take note of all that we have by cultivating a positive mindset."
 
WCAC Board Member and local attorney Maurice Tynes initiated the idea of this campaign. "Attitudes by the economic community can cause a chain reaction with economic growth. We want to encourage people to shop locally and support our businesses in West Calcasieu and throughout Southwest Louisiana," Tynes explained.
 
The public is invited to attend the official launch of this new campaign on Friday, July 1 at 10am at the Sulphur City Council Chambers located at 500 North Huntington Street. "We're excited about this new campaign and encourage all businesses to support it by displaying our Think Positive. Be Positive. material at their location," said Levens. "We have some material in, such as bumper stickers and window clings, and we'll work with businesses on ordering more for their offices. We've received overwhelming support from the businesses and residents we've talked to and we look for this to become the first wave of a statewide initiative about the positive things in Louisiana."
