Photo Gallery | 'Choose 901 Day' to celebrate positive in Bluff City
This week a campaign of passionate Memphians will celebrate a full year of sharing positive aspects of the city, and why they "Choose 901".
Along with encouraging active community participation, part of Choose 901's goal is to showcase opportunities to invest in the Bluff City - especially to people who are looking to move to the area.
"Heard about the movement and wanted to be a part of what they were doing," said Choose 901 program coordinator Taylor Lewis on the organization's website.
Choose 901 shares colorful gems of Memphis through photos and videos posted on social media sites. One popular aspect includes "901 TV" which puts a spotlight on Memphians from directors like Craig Brewer to cupcake masterminds like bakers at Muddy's Bake Shop.
"I moved here from Jackson, MS when I got married in 2009 (my husband is from Southaven), and instantly fell in love with the city. I knew I could really enjoy and invest my life here," said Choose 901 social media coordinator Amanda Hill.
The organization is having its first Choose 901 Day Tuesday to celebrate the organization's one year. This celebration will last the whole day while Huey’s Midtown is open, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m. You can find out more about the day's events here.
