Tourism turns focus to festivals

Staff Writer

After a March in which the Grenada Tourism Commission saw three big fishing tournaments come to Grenada Lake, the focus has now switched to summer events.

Following a brief meeting with the Magnolia Crappie Club, in which the club advised the tourism commission of their championship in June, commissioners voted 4-0 against making money available for further fishing tournaments. Cheryl Stevens made the motion, and it was seconded by Steven Robinson.

Commissioner Karen Williams and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tonja Ray-Smith also voted in favor. Commissioner Phillip Mixon abstained due to his board seat on the Magnolia Crappie Club. Commissioner Jan Walton was not present.
