Tourism grants awarded

canoe sport A couple weeks ago, the Indianola Chamber of Commerce handed out grants, sponsored by the Tourism Committee and funded by the City of Indianola.  These grants are generous and provide a much needed funding source to assist with marketing, promotion and growth for existing and start-up money new businesses.

A few recipients include the Indianola Downtown Merchants, Canoe Sport Outfitters, Jim Johnson, organizer of Bluegrass Tuesdays, just to name a few.  Tourism season is quickly approaching.  Fun events are being planned in and around the county.  Take another look at Warren County…try a staycation and just see what you can find right in your own backyard.  Maybe an overnight get-away, close to home is in order…check out one of the B&B’s.  Be adventurous and try kayaking, canoeing, or stand-up paddling classes with Canoe Sport Outfitters.  Pack a picnic and spend a summer evening on the Square at Bluegrass Tuesdays.  Let us know what you find, what you do where you went.

My life's story weaves itself in and out of happiness, contentment, struggles, laughter, hardships, sadness, losses, gains, friends and family. What I know now, is that my life's story has made me who I am and I have been inspired by it and hope to be an inspiration to others...My Inspired Life~ You can enjoy my personal/business blog at: AND follow Burlap & Roses on FACEBOOK at: Burlap & Roses.
