To become better ambassadors to the area, Algoma Visitor Center volunteers played tourist last Friday in their hometown. Over 30 dedicated volunteer staff traveled by bus, around the Algoma area to visit the newest sights and places that are special to tourism. Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sara Krouse says she came up with the idea a few years ago.
The bus tour included stops at a winery, an art gallery, a brewery and the Belgian Heritage Center in Namur. Krouse says she hopes to expand the tour in future years to include more sites, including lodging facilities and campgrounds.
