Jamie Martin of the Alabama Department of Tourism visited Randolph County last week. The purpose of her visit is to promote Randolph County around the state.
The Alabama Department of Tourism is making an effort to promote rural communities across Alabama. Bryant Whaley of Randolph County Economic Development pitched some ideas and places for Martin to come see. Dorothy Tidwell of Randolph County Chamber of Commerce and Whaley took Jamie across the county.
The three of them went from the Tallapoosa River and Southern Union State Community College to the new winery in downtown Wedowee and boating in Lake Wedowee. They toured Main Street Theatre and Kids Town in Roanoke and the pavilion and water towers in Woodland. The group visited shops in every community, then finished up at Wehadkee Creek in Rock Mills.
Martin said this was the most fun she has ever had visiting a county. Pictures of her visit will be used in the Sweet Home Alabama Magazine, on the AL Tourism website and as welcome center material.
