Oswego County Tourism Department Offers Free Publicity for Winter Events

OSWEGO -- The Oswego County Department of Promotion and Tourism is compiling a list of events and activities to include in its "Winter in Oswego County" brochure. The brochure is a comprehensive list of events that take place throughout Oswego County between Nov. 1, 2005 and March 31, 2006.

"This is an excellent opportunity for community groups and organizations in Oswego County to get free publicity for the special events they are sponsoring this winter," said Christine Gray, director of the Oswego County Department of Promotion and Tourism. "The brochure also includes plenty of places in Oswego County to cross-country ski, snowshoe, snowmobile, ice skate, and of course, fish!"

The county will distribute about 13,000 copies of the brochure free of charge through outdoor sports shows, travel and vacation shows, New York State Thruway and Gateway information centers, chambers of commerce, and by mail. Listings are also posted on the Oswego County Website at www.oswegocounty.com.

Information should be submitted to the Department of Promotion and Tourism by Friday, Sept. 16. Forms are being mailed to clubs and organizations that have submitted information in the past. Entry forms may also be downloaded from the Oswego County Web site at www.oswegocounty.com.

For information, contact Mary Ellen Barbeau at the Department of Promotion and Tourism, e-mail mbarbeau@oswegocounty.com, or phone 349-8322 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 8322.
