Visit Fergus Falls Provides Lead Gift to Chamber Renovation
At its March meeting today, March 19, the Visit Fergus Falls board voted unanimously to donate $10,000 to the building renovation project for the Fergus Falls Chamber of Commerce. Jean Bowman, Executive Director of Visit Fergus Falls notes “The Chamber of Commerce is the front door to our community. When visitors are looking for information, the Chamber of Commerce provides excellent customer service, allowing our staff to focus on marketing and outreach. The Visit Fergus Falls office is on the third floor in City Hall, not conducive to daily visitors. We produce many of the visitor information materials for the community and depend on the amazing staff at the Chamber to answer questions and interface with the customer. This is an investment in making that interaction more cheerful, space more accessible (and safe) and reflecting positively on this community.” Bowman also noted that funds for this donation will be paid for from previous years’ visitor’s guide advertising sales, not lodging tax revenue.
