Coweta tourism reps visit Capitol
Members of the staff and board of the Coweta County Convention and Visitors Bureau recently attended Tourism Day at the Capitol on Jan. 28.
In addition to taking part in a presentation to Gov. Nathan Deal from the state’s tourism partners and the unveiling of the 2014 Georgia Travel Guide, they met with members of the General Assembly representing Coweta County and discussed issues involving tourism in the region.
Visiting with State Rep. Lynn Smith at her Capitol office were Coweta CVB Director Tray Baggarly, CVB Coordinator Lorraine LaRue, and CVB Board member Nancy Roy.
At the Travel Guide unveiling there were look-alikes portraying Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler from the movie “Gone With the Wind.” The 2014 Georgia Travel Guide features Scarlett (portrayed by Cynthia Evans) and Rhett (portrayed by Chad Sanborn) in front of Jonesboro’s Stately Oaks Plantation in Clayton County.
Last year’s Travel Guide featured two separate covers from Coweta County relating to Senoia tourism with “The Walking Dead” and Zac Brown.
