Make no mistake - the Convention & Visitors Bureau is absolutely delighted with the exciting news of our new convention and conference center. The remarks that led off my quote in the newspaper Wednesday were merely in response to a reporter's specific question to me.
Our office gets several calls a week from groups looking for a large meeting space, and we will ensure they are fully aware of our wonderful, new conference center. The economic impact of this facility will be an incredible boost to our community.
And remember, all of those extra visitors will mean each of us will have to keep that wonderful Southern hospitality flowing!
