RE: “Green fest garners Western attention” in the 1-21-2011 Kern River Courier
Those behind the 3rd Annual Living Green Kern River Valley Festival (and about 50 additional volunteers) THANK YOU for the excellent front page article “Green fest garners Western attention” in the 1-21-2011 Kern River Courier. We really appreciate the support the Kern River Courier gives to our festival – the longest running Living Green festival in Kern County.
We’d like to give thanks also to Supervisor Jon McQuiston and the rest of the Kern County Board of Supervisors and the Kern County Board of Trade for the 2010/11 Tourism Promotion Grant we got to pay for the ads you mentioned. Travel spending totaled $1.15 billion in Kern County in 2006, supporting nearly 14,000 jobs. Film and television production companies spend about $15 million a year while shooting at locations throughout the county. The Kern County Board of Trade is responsible for promoting and marketing Kern County and Executive Director Rick Davis and his able staff do a great job at doing that and assisting groups around the county reach millions of potential visitors to Kern County. http://www.kerncountyboardoftrade.com/
