The Auburn Tourism Commission is holding a meeting at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8, 2016, at Auburn City Hall to discuss the Tourism’s upcoming events calendar.
“In the past, Tourism has been run with only a handful of volunteers,” said Sarah Moore, a member of the commission. “We need many volunteers with fresh ideas and “can do” attitudes.”
Recently, there has been discussion surrounding the city’s events and organizers are having this meeting to discuss old and new calendar items.
“We are in need of volunteers who are interested in taking an active part in organizing and orchestrating these events to come to our meeting and help out,” Moore added. “It takes a large number of people to plan and put together festivals and community gatherings. The more people we have working, the less work each person has to do and the more appealing our events become and better our city looks.”
Rural tourism commissions are active in bringing in economic growth for the community, as well as supplying special events and activities for those who live there. Tourism also invites those who live out of the community to come in and see what is offered. Tourism can not only attract visitors, but also those who are looking for a place to live.
The commission invites each one interested to bring ideas and supporting strategies to the meeting on Monday.
“We look forward to seeing you there and to working with you to make Auburn even better,” Moore ended.
