Tourism Meeting Slated

The state legislature’s joint committee on tourism, arts and cultural development will meet on Monday, June 9, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown.

Rep. Eric Turkington of Falmouth, co-chairman of the committee, said the Island is an especially appropriate place to meet, “since tourism, arts and culture are the key economic forces that drive the Vineyard economy.”

Joining committee members will be representatives of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism. More information is available by calling the committee at 617-722-2015 or the chamber of commerce at 508-693-0085.
