Prowers Lodging Panel Helps Fund 9/11 Tribute

The Second Annual Tri-State 9/11 Remembrance event received $1,035 in funding from the Prowers County Lodging Tax Panel during their monthly meeting, March 19.  Organizer Doug Harbour detailed the growing list of activities and participants scheduled for the September 14 event at the Prowers County Fairgrounds.  Harbour said the funds will finance letters of invitation to potential participants throughout the region as well as promotional posters.   As this was only the second time this event has been planned and has grown in scope, Harbour said he couldn’t predict the number of either participants or viewers who would stay overnight in Lamar and Prowers County.  He estimated there would be some out of town visitors who would arrive the night before and some would probably depart on Sunday.

Panel members approved advertising in the Discover Magazine listing various annual county events and activities in the travel and tourism guide.  The panel tabled funding requests for the annual Lamar Car Show and Rod Run and for development of brochures highlighting golfing packages in southern Colorado until more information was available. 

A two year term on the Lodging Panel Board is still open to eligible Prowers County residents who have employment or background in the tourism industry.  Contact the Board of Prowers County Commissioners for information on the application, or Carla Scranton at PCDI at 719-336-2384.
