Courthouse sun catcher now available

Brown County Ohio Tourism, Inc. was recently created to promote Brown County as a tourist destination. Under the slogan “History, Hospitality, Discovery” the group is dedicated to bring more people and dollars to Brown County. When people visit the area for an event or to visit a local attraction, they may spend overnight, buy lunch or dinner, or buy other items. The entire community benefits from attracting people to the area.

Many people are aware of our historic connections to Ulysses Grant and the Underground Railroad. There are many other interesting events and attractions that many may not know about. We have a wealth of history, natural beauty and nature activities, and entertainment opportunities. The county offers a great variety of sights and experiences that need to be publicized in our region.

To this end the group recently published Brown County Tourism, a local tourism magazine, in conjunction with The News Democrat that was distributed around the region. The group plans to publish the Brown County Tourism magazine twice a year with the next issue being due out in March.

The Tourism group includes Stan Purdy, chairman; Nancy Montgomery, vice-chairman; Betty Campbell, secretary; Sonja Cropper, treasurer; Susan Bean, trustee; Carol Stivers, trustee; and Natasha Coldiron, trustee. The group came together out of their interest in the county and their desire to share it with others. The group has formed a not for profit corporation and will apply to become designated a tax exempt organization. The purpose of the corporation is to develop, enhance, publicize, and encourage tourism in Brown County.

They will also be holding fundraisers to raise money to further promote Brown County as a tourism destination. The first will be a sun catcher featuring the courthouse made by the local Glass Factory. They will be available in amber and a medium cobalt blue. Suncatchers may be purchased at The News Democrat office in Georgetown for $10. You may also email bcohtourisminc@gmail.com or call 937-378-3744 for other places the suncatchers will be available. There is a limited number.

This new Brown County Courthouse sun catcher is now available at the offices of The News Democrat in Georgetown.
