Downtown Association: 40 years & counting

The Downtown Association (DTA) of San Marcos hosted their second meeting of the year Monday night at Gumby's new location on Hopkins St. The meeting was a social to introduce the recently elected executive board and officers as well as welcome potential new members to join. This year marks the organization's 40th year and they have reinvigorated their efforts with a newly designed website, a newly defined downtown boundary and tiered membership options.
