How do we bring more tourist dollars to Lewistown?
Much discussion took place on this topic Thursday morning at Central Feed Grilling Co. during an Eastern Montana Tourism Partnership Initiative outreach meeting.
Dax Schieffer of Voices of Montana Tourism, and Jan Stoddard, Benjamin Gill and Raylee Honeycutt of the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development led the meeting, the last of their multi-town tour, which included stops in Billings, Poplar and Miles City as part of an effort to put more time and resources into promoting and enhancing tourism in eastern Montana.
Community leaders such as Chris Cooler, Holly Phelps, Karen Kuhlmann, KellyAnne Terry, Carly Wheatley and others were also present at the meeting.
