It's February and time to start thinking about the upcoming visitor season. That means contacting people with updates for tour times and making sure each has information for my tours. I am so happy that, after several years, my tours will be included in a Havre brochure! Called the "green brochure", it has ads for all of the other historic sites in town along with restaurants and hotels-except mine. What bothered me the most is that for its initial printing, public bed tax dollars were used, and both "executive directors" of both organizations involved knew I did tours and excluded them on purpose. How shameful.
However, while change is sometimes slow, change does happen. One is now no longer at the helm, and it's just a matter of time before the other one leaves. Age does that. And I've been patiently waiting in the wings to come out of the shadows and really get to work, and I can't tell you how great it is to have a crew who is cooperative, helpful and above all, NICE. With the addition in the "green brochure", I will also be working to make sure my tours are on their website and in the "brown brochure".
Times, they are a-changin', and I'm here to see to it for the better!
