Thanks for making tour by travel writers a success

December 19, 2004

Dear Editor:

The Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted 12 travel writers and two photographers on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8.

These writers from across the nation were very impressed with our community and the warm welcome they received. We've already heard positive feedback from their visit, which means we're sure to receive national recognition over the course of the next year.

There is no way to put a price-tag on the value of this free publicity. These visitors, and the stories they write, will represent thousands of dollars of advertising equivalency and are likely to have a tremendous economic impact on Danville and Boyle County.

I am writing to extend special thanks to everyone who helped make the travel writer tour a tremendous success. The goal of the visit was to showcase Danville and Boyle County as a tourist destination. Many local business owners provided complimentary services, and everyone involved gave of their time and extended a gracious welcome.


Many thanks to Julie Wagner, Janet Hamner, Mary Jo Joseph, Wilma Brown, David Farmer, Stephen Rolfe Powell, Sheldon Tapley, Irena Illena, Guy Ingram, the Community Arts Center, Chateau du Vieux Corbeau Winery, Freddie's, Constitution Square State Historic Site, Wilderness Trace Art League, Burke's Bakery, McDowell House & Apothecary, Penn's Store, Norton Center for the Arts, Three Babes and a Monkey, Perryville Enhancement Project, Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site, Elmwood Inn Fine Teas, Danville Model Railroad Museum, Two Roads Caf, Kentucky Smokin' Grill, Pioneer Playhouse and Mom Blakeman's Candy.

I was want to extend a very special thank-you to our local bed and breakfast owners for opening their homes and hosting these special guests: The Chambers, Country Lane, Golden Lion, Old Crow Inn and Twin Hollies.
