Shelley Zorn: Imagine Thomasville
Show Notes

In this episode of the South Georgia Insider Podcast, we’re talking to Shelley Zorn, executive director of the Thomasville-Thomas Payroll Development Authority

It is a year to celebrate, as annual the Thomasville Rose Show and Festival, Thomasville-Thomas Chamber of Commerce, and Rotary Club of Thomasville reach the 100-year milestone. 

Zorn says the three centennial events provided a perfect time to launch Imagine Thomasville, a joint marketing effort of the Thomasville Payroll Development Authority (PDA) and Thomasville-Thomas Chamber of Commerce. 

While using the Imagine Thomasville theme, the PDA and Chamber will retain separate boards of directors and budgets. 

Marketing efforts include the Let’s Talk Thomasville podcast, which was launched in March, and the Imagine Thomasville newsletter to reach a larger audience.

On the economic development side, Zorn says the past two years have been busy for Thomasville and Thomas County, including a new distribution center for Ashley’s Home Furniture (based in Thomasville), Yellow Freight, an Alabama-based trucking company, and Concrete Enterprises.

Join us next time as we continue to promote South Georgia as a great place to live, work, play, and visit.
