Upshur County CVB Files Yearly Report with County Commission

Posted: Updated:

The Upshur County Convention and Visitors Bureau has filed its yearly report with county commission.

The CVB is required to submit a report to the city and county because it receives tax dollars.

It said the state Department of Tourism gave it more than $23,000 in advertising grants this year to promote the county.

"The fact we were awarded $23,400 from the state is just amazing, and we appreciate it and it makes a big difference in what we're able to do in far as advertising," said Laura Meadows, of the Upshur County CVB.

Meadows said the CVB is developing a campaign called "What Small Town Charm is All About."

It's also working with the CVBs in Lewis and Randolph Counties to create Route 33 weekend visitor packages.
