An Interesting Invitation – Should We Accept It?

Tourism season will be here before we know it!  National Tourism Week is May 7 – 13th.

Recently, Diane Pawlowski, owner of Antique & Uniques received an invitation to the Fairbury area to help celebrate National Tourism Week at one of the State’s Welcome Centers which is distributing our brochures.  Diane is the contact for Fairbury at the Illinois Tourism Information Centers.

We are honored to be invited to this opportunity to set up a display with posters, cards, pictures, brochures, and explain what our town has to offer.  It is free of charge, and they ask for a minimum of two hours.

We would be the only booth there at the Welcome Center during the time we are allocated so we would have all the travelers to ourselves.  The goal would be to tell people first-hand about all the interesting attractions we have around the Fairbury area!

Would anyone like to volunteer to help out with this opportunity?

“Please give Mary Beth or Helen a call at The Business Connection if you have an interest in taking advantage of this great chance to bring more folks to Fairbury!” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops Group.  “The Business Connection’s phone number is (815) 692-3710.  We would love to hear from you!” Bobbi concludes.

As always, please stop by Heart’s Desire, call Bobbi McKeon at (815) 692-4500 or email fairbury@fairburyILattractions.com with any stories, ideas or suggestions for interesting topics to write for our community.
