Letter: KFEA enjoys local hospitality

-A A +A

On Friday, March 25, the Kentucky Festivals and Events Association board and guests were hosted by the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission at its “Spring Meet.” The support of the tourist commission and in particular, Chris Hamilton and his assistant, Carla Wagner, in the planning and execution of this event was phenomenal.It was a tremendous factor in the great experience enjoyed by all in visiting Lebanon.  

The meeting convened at the convention complex at Centre Square after an enlightening tour of Kentucky Cooperage and the Fine Arts Building at Centre Square. Programming included social media, fundraising and marketing. 

The “Spring Meet” received accolades from the attendees not only for the educational content of the programming but also for the enthusiasm and hospitality of the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission. Attendees hailed from Albany, Cumberland, Frankfort, Hodgenville, Hart County, Munfordville, Louisville, and Fort Wayne, Ind., as well as Lebanon.

With this hospitality shown to all, I’m sure KFEA will return for another great experience in the future.
