On a quarterly basis the Preble County Convention & Visitors Bureau (PCCVB) reports on its work to the Preble County Commissioners. As background, in late 2011 the county commission created the PCCVB as the recipient of the 3 percebr bed tax applicable to certain portions of the county and required a quarterly report of all activities performed and on the process which encourages and promotes travel and tourism in Preble County.
The 2014 Visitors’ Guide to Preble County was published in February and is available in many locations in Preble County. Articles feature key tourism sites in the county as well as a list of shopping, dining, lodging, and recreational facilities in the county and events known to be scheduled at the time of publication. The PCCVB appreciates our partnership with The Register-Herald in making this publication possible.
In addition, the PCCVB thanks the advertisers who support the 2014 Visitors’ Guide with their advertisements. The 2014 advertisers are: The Rodeo Shop; the Twin Creek Tea Room and Ivy Parlor Gift Shop; Carl and Kathi Petelle, Country Mile Realtors; Robbin Bitner, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate; Preble County Chamber of Commerce, West Alexandria Kiwanis Oktoberfest; Natural Springs Resort; Mulberry Pheasantry Hunting Preserve; 2014 Preble County Fair; Applefest 2014; The Preble County Pork festival; the Tri-County North Community Association; Village of Lewisburg; and Preble County Historical Society Bridges, Bikes, and Blues.
The PCCVB’s Visitors’ Guide and Covered Bridge brochures are available at The Register Herald office at 200 Eaton-Lewisburg Road in Eaton, the Preble County Chamber of Commerce, the Preble County Courthouse, all branches of the Preble County District Library, and at other locations throughout the county. The brochures also are available to download at the Bureau’s web site at www.preblecountypassport.com.
For 2014, the web site is featuring occasional stories about all of the cities and villages in Preble County. The February Feature of the Month focused on the village of Lewisburg. Much more information about local resources is available on the site.
