TDC celebrates successful fall marketing campaign

At last year’s event, yarn spinners included Panama City humorist Pat Nease and Tallahassee’s Robyn A. Rennick. The council awarded the funds in hopes that the event could ultimately rival the 10,000 person events held in North Carolina and Tennessee.

Patrick Jones appeared on behalf of the Port of Port St. Joe. He explained that until the Port is operational, funds are not available for operating costs. In order to raise money, the Gulf County Economic Development Alliance, Inc. decided to host a golf tournament in December and sought $1,500-$2,000 to purchase signage, banners and flyers to market the event.

“Less than two months to pull off a golf tournament is a recipe for disaster,” said Warriner.

The council agreed that they would help promote the event through their online presence, but no money was awarded and the request was tabled while Jones explored other avenues for funding.

Prior to adjournment, Warriner revealed that County Commissioner Warren Yeager, also a member of the TDC council, would serve for the 2014 year.
