Carol Hamlin Buczek, owner of Tours by Design, was awarded the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce's 2015 Endowment Fund presented by President Debby Leiker on May 14th. The announcement was made at a Business After Hours hosted by Foothills Mercantile in Barneveld. Carol will be using the money awarded to upgrade her website, making it mobile friendly, hoping to appeal to a new generation of travelers.

The series has been broken up into six topics of interest as follows:
Attendance is open to our Members, our CAMV associates and the Public. As we schedule dates we will let you know.
Visitors Information Center
The Adirondack Foothills Visitor Information Center (VIC), is located on Rte. 12 North, just past the Rte.12/365 interchange, outside the Village of Barneveld. The facility is managed and operated by the Adirondack Gateway Business Association in conjunction with the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce. The lobby is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, offering brochures and handouts to visitors and tourists coming to the area. The VIC has information on retail outlets, restaurants, motels, bed and breakfasts, attractions, recreational facilities, businesses and more. During the summer season, portable restrooms are available outside the building.
Funding for the facility is made possible through support from local municipalities and donations, as well as monies raised through the brochure program. The VIC is also supported by Oneida County Tourism.
