Members of the Autumn on the Erie Committee have met for their first meeting of the year. The committee is very busy organizing events and promotions for the Wayne County municipalities along the canal. Our Objectives are to bring visitors into Wayne County to see the canal communities and the resources they offer, i.e. Museums, Businesses, Organizations. We want people in the community and guests to the County to learn more about the fascinating history of this area. We would like to see each business witness more foot traffic and every non-profit gain new membership. We would also like to encourage each of these elements of the community to communicate and work together in order to improve and protect the quality of life of these communities. The dates for this project begin on September 1 and end on October 31. During this time, we are asking each community to select a project that will highlight the community. We would like businesses to use this project to promote themselves with special sales and “Erie Canal” promotions. There is no extra cost for this program. Each business or organization decides what they want to spend or offer. The more each community works together, the more each business and resident and non-profit will receive. Some ideas for your community might be very ambitious—Canal Days in Palmyra requires a great deal of planning. Some might be on a smaller scale—just a poster in a window. Last year our free drawing was very successful and will be repeated. We are hoping that each municipality will receive donations from local businesses to build and raffle of their own basket. We invite you to participate in this and help yourselves by promoting your businesses, your organizations and your community. Let us know what you are doing so that we might publish your activity and help to promote it. We also need more representation from businesses and municipalities. We always have a great time.
