The Queen of Buckeye Lake II

Today I picked up the girls and we had a quick lunch and then headed over to pick up a special swimsuit, goggles and beach towel for Miss Sabrina. After much consideration she decided on the Speedo style that is reversible...pink/white/black on one side and the other side is mostly black with pink trim. I think she was happy but shopping can wear me out quickly.
After I dropped the girls off with their mother and headed down to Buckeye Lake for a special meeting with the Licking County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Jamie promised us a treat with a ride on the pontoon boat "The Queen of the Lake II". The meeting covered some important considerations for our state to make...mostly financial in a very tough economy. The Babe Ruth series for 2010 needs a fairy godmother, should we allow outsiders bring in their casinos for mostly minimum wage positions, and the upcoming Morpar car event that is already sold out. We all need to remember we are all advocates for tourism in our county and the benefits will repay and renew our future adventures. Licking county will be working with an educational outreach "Promoting the Ancient Ohio Trail" which makes perfect sense to me because we have something here that no one else has to offer. Our LCCVB is working incredibly hard with industry insight, visibility, legislative representation as well as opportunities for networking , professional development with leadership and recognition. We will all grow and have a wealth of opportunities for our families. Thank you to the whole staff as we continue our quest for an improved lifestyle for everyone.
