Public Involvement Continues on Proposed LOVEwork for the Pu-LOVE-ski Initiative

The Town of Pulaski and Pulaski On Main, the Virginia Main Street affiliate, once again invite town residents to offer ideas and inspirations to construct Pulaski’s own LOVEwork. The LOVEwork campaign operates through the Virginia is for Lovers tagline, which is supported by the Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC). The second of three public engagements for the sculpture will take place once again at the historic Pulaski Theatre, 14 W. Main Street, this time on Jan. 31 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. The program will involve viewing examples from across the Commonwealth and then discussing various concepts for a LOVEwork in downtown Pulaski.

“This second of two public information meetings offers residents the opportunity to become involved,” offers Catherine Van Noy, Interim Director for Pulaski on Main. “Attendance at our first meeting in November was hampered by a pending ice storm. Here’s hoping the Jan. 31 weather will be favorable for folks to come out to our historic downtown theatre, which is, in itself, a community treasure.”

The meeting will enlist citizens interested in working on the Pulaski LOVEwork, a four-month volunteer effort involving approximately five to six hours of personal time spread over this period.

According to the VTC, the LOVEworks program is a state-wide branding initiative designed to promote travel in Virginia and strengthen awareness of the “Virginia is for Lovers” message. In 2019, the VTC is celebrating 50 years of LOVE.

Domestic travel expenditures across Virginia increased 4.4% to $24.8 billion in 2017, directly supporting 232,200 jobs, according to a study conducted by the Research Department of the U.S. Travel Association for the Virginia Tourism Corporation.
