May 5-13 is Travel & Tourism Week

Stanton Mayor Allan Sterbinsky, Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne and County Mayor Franklin Smith sign the proclamation proclaiming May 5-13, 2012, as Travel and Tourism Week in Haywood County.
It's official! Brownsville, Stanton and Haywood County have officially kicked-off National Travel and Tourism Week with an official  proclamation declaring May 5-13 as Travel and Tourism Week in our county. The ceremony was held at the Delta Heritage Center Friday, May 4. 
Community leaders and friends joined the Mayors to celebrate the significance of tourism in our community.
Tourism in Haywood County is a $12.96 Million industry and we are really excited about recognizing this national event and beginning new efforts to promote our community and the region. We are inviting local residents to become tourist in our own hometown and discover (or rediscover) attractions they may be overlooking while going about their day to day activities.

Also on hand for the Proclamation was the Tennessee Department of Tourism's West Tennessee Regional Representative Marty Marbry (left), pictured here with WT Delta Heritage Center Director Sonia Outlaw-Clark.
Rev. Grover Westover entertained event attendees before the reception and proclamation signing.
