A Dual Announcement
A new policy for the Haywood Highland
ers, and The Chamber of Commerce has been
made as follows, effective immediately:
The Highlanders will again publish 15,000
colorful accommodations booklets, listing
therein, only those who are paid members of
the Highlanders. The deadline for the booklet
is March first.
The Chamber of Commerce will make |
available a list of all inquiries, and handle fold
ers in the office of only those who hold paid-up
memberships in The Chamber of Commerce.
The two groups are working clogely and
mutually together for the promotion of the
tourist business in this area. This clear-cut
policy is being adopted for the best interest of
all concerned, as no organization can operate an
expensive program without sufficient funds,
and therefore it has become necessary to only
render service to those who are helping pay for
the program which is designed to promote
more travel business in this section.
