Publicize your local events
The Thurman Town Board has set a due date of Dec. 7 for occupancy tax grant applications relating to 2013 events. The Occupancy Tax Committee is expected to meet later in December to review the applications and make recommendations.
Events scheduled for 2013 can be listed at no charge in Warren County brochures and on placemats, so now is the time to nail down the details and submit the information to the county Tourism Department. Send the information to Ellen at county Tourism via email at: email@example.com. Or, send the details to Perky Granger and she will format the list and send it to Ellen after collating it with other sources. We hear that Ellen would like information on any event from April through September, but if you have later ones, send all dates.
Be sure to notify Perky Granger of all event-related information anyway, so she can include it in the town brochure, which will be printed in January. These brochures are distributed on the Northway rest stops, at the Lake George Visitors Center, at train stations, and at the new county tourism information in the Adirondack Factory Outlet Mall. These events will also be listed online on the Thurman events page, www.persisgranger.com/Thurman-NYEvents.htm.
Perky can also arrange to have email blasts sent out for local events.
