Visitor kiosk help needed | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

The first thing Maury and I do when we enter a new territory on vacation is make a beeline for the visitor information booth. We have been rewarded with hints including the Ale Trail in Bend, Ore., the Art Trail on Salt Spring Island and the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Ore. All things we would never have known to do. Thanks to some well-trained visitor kiosk volunteers on Whidbey, thousands of people from all over the U. S. and the world have had this same experience.

For the past five years I have had a great time greeting, meeting and guiding the lost. I provide a dining guide, a fun map, a lodging list and information for specific interest tours, all of which plays a big role in the economic development of our island community. We are a destination spot and our well-orchestrated tourism information system helps us reap big rewards.

Please join me. I shouldn’t have all the fun. Volunteer today. You will receive the expert training offered by Katy Shaner, the manager of the visitor kiosk at Ken’s Korner.

Don’t let someone leave Whidbey without having had an opportunity to do all it has to offer. Email Katy Shaner at ktshaner@whidbey.com or leave your name at the Langley, Freeland or Clinton chamber, and help make someone’s stay.
