Greater Grand Lake Visitors Center holds their Annual Awards Reception


The Greater Grand Lake Visitors Center held their Annual Awards Reception Thursday afternoon in the “under construction” St Marys Theater and Grand Opera House.  Doug Spencer gave a great presentation on the plans for the building and tours were given so attendees could appreciate its incredible  history  and the efforts that have taken place so far to save it! 


Matt  Berry was named Ambassador of the Year for his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty for the Visitors Center such as donning the Seymour the Seagull suit to entertain the crowds at the GL Marathon and take part In photo shoots for the Brews-N-Vine Trail. He has also provided great leadership for the organization including serving as President.
 
The city of St Marys received the Stahr award for their transformation of the canal corridor through the community. Their efforts certainly highlighted that asset and created a beautiful area attracting visitors (and locals) to enjoy a stroll along the Miami-Erie Canal!
