Amador Council of Tourism - Thurs Aug 13

Welcome back, ACT supporters-
Our next meeting is Thursday, August 13th, 9am, Jackson Rancheria Casino resort hotel conference room. Attached (below) is the agenda for our meeting next week. Minutes will be sent Monday morning, with a quick reminder of our meeting.
1.       Summer has been amazing. Our Preston Castle booth at State Fair attracted great numbers and Preston Castle itself has seen an increase in tour number, monetary donations and offers of professional help. Congratulations, Amador County.
2.       Supper Under the Stars was a smash hit. We had 160 people attend and judging by the social media and conversations around town, more will come next year.
Many thanks to our small and hard-working committee for pulling this together. Thanks also to all who responded to our requests for food, alcohol, and silent auction items. We will report on the details at our meeting next Thursday.
3.       Some great advertising opportunities are coming up in the fall. Please look for our emails with the update.
Thanks for your support,
