The Tourism Council allocates funds to the Sidney Arts Center
SIDNEY – The Snow Pond Center for the Arts received $ 1,662 in sponsorship grants from the Kennebec Valley Tourism Board in Augusta.
The funds are to be used for a marketing video and will help grow tourism in the Kennebec Valley, Maine to produce a positive economic impact on the area.
Snow Pond was one of 12 sponsorship recipients awarded under the KVTC 2021 Marketing Partner Program. Applications reached nearly $ 29,100. The organization was not able to fully fund all regional sponsorships to its members this year, but with help from Brookfield Renewable US, it was able to fund approximately $ 19,350.
“Snow Pond is proud to partner with the board in an effort to increase tourism. Snow Pond’s Bowl in the Pines is poised to be a major tourist attraction and concert venue for national tours. The marketing video, produced with this grant, will have a longer lifespan and broader reach than promoting a single event. The video will also highlight the Belgrade Lake District as a cultural destination for travelers and compliment the regional initiative for population growth by showcasing the region as a great place to visit, live and work! Said Christa Johnson, Director of Development. , according to the center’s statement.
