North Warren Chamber looking for new ways to promote tourism

CHESTERTOWN - The North Warren Chamber of Commerce is now developing a variety of new publications while making progress on upgrading their website, according to reports aired at the Chamber's April 1 meeting.

The Hospitality Committee is working on drafting a new business directory, and the second edition of the Chamber's newsletter Dynamite News is about to be published.

The Chamber has been taking action on another front. Their advertising committee is formulating new ways to sell the North Warren area to vacationers, Chamber officials said.

The agency's web committee has worked hard to improve the Chamber's website and is seeking to have paid personnel conduct the time-consuming, recurring updates.

A host of improvements to the website are now under development, Chamber officials said.

Chamber members discussed local and regional participation of the Quadricentennial of the discovery of the Hudson River.

This statewide celebration of Hudson River heritage has national reach, and efforts are underway with Pam Morin and Chamber President Greg Beckler to print and distribute a historic map that points out landmarks and attractions of the upper Hudson River. An existing map, published by organizations in the mid-Hudson Valley - and focusing only on the lower stretch of the river - has already been printed and distributed.

Beckler and Morin have been making presentations to government groups garnering their support for the historic map, in an effort to prompt their constituents to join this celebration and attract people to our area along the Hudson River, particularly from Glens Falls north.

The towns of Chester, Horicon, Lake Luzerne and Stony Creek have all pledged their support for the map project. Karen Smith agreed to be the treasurer for the committee.

The year 2013 is the bicentennial of Warren County, and Chamber members have expressed interest in playing a vital part of this celebration too.
