Tourism in Thumb Gets Boost from Community Foundations & Northstar Bank

(LEXINGTON) -- In hopes of expanding tourism, four mobile touch-screen kiosks will be installed at locations in Huron and Sanilac counties with the tourism season officially underway. The St. Clair, Sanilac, and Huron County Community Foundations have joined forces with Northstar Bank during the cross marketing and advertising effort. The first kiosk was placed at the Lexington Welcome Center last Friday. Others will be installed at the Revolution Cafe in Harbor Beach, the Port Sanilac Welcome Center and through the Sanilac Tourism Council, who will rotate their kiosk at area fairs and festivals. Northstar Bank partially funded the $11,000 cost for the 2-year pilot program. The mobile kiosks feature  tourism websites that cover the three counties including www.bluewater.org, www.huroncounty.com, and www.sanilaccounty.net
