Back in about 2001, a few
commercial center merchants were discussing forming an association
to promote business within our community. Shortly thereafter, the
Pine Mountain Village Merchants Association (PMVMA) was formed.
With the help of others that had been recruited, this was shortly
followed by obtaining a 501c non-profit status, a DBA, a mission
statement plus several other legalities that had the organization formally up and
running. In the early years of the PMVMA good things happened for
both the commercial center and the community. Christmas Trees for charity,
the creation of the Pine Mountain Wine
Festival, the Pine Mountain Club Fall Festival of music, cleaning up
the commercial center, providing Christmas gifts for local
underprivileged children and participating in many other community
efforts. Unfortunately circumstances led to a brief hiatus.
Now we are back stronger
than ever with great things planned for the future that include ALL
merchants in Pine Mountain Club. After all, we are a “Village
Merchants Association”. “Village” as defined in the Wikipedia Encyclopedia: “A
village is a clustered human settlement or community larger than a
hamlet, but smaller than a town or city”. Thus all of Pine Mountain Club is our beautiful mountain
