The Morgan County Tourism Alliance received a FY2017-18 Developmental Co-op Grant in the amount of $4,000 to expand media outreach informing the public of the events, activities and tourism opportunities for Morgan County and the region. 


The Tribute to King Pleasure Jazz Concert was part of the grant money program.  Other projects for which the money will be used are: Promotion of the Mountain Laurel Festival through new Rack Cards, Digital Billboard Advertising, and Trade Shows. 


Completion of the 9-panel pop-up display and Graphic Design are also part of the grant money project.  The Bill Landry video of Oakdale and Clarence Beeks (King Pleasure) was in part funded by the grant money.


It is a matching grant and fund raising events will be held to meet the matching funds.  The Bill Landry video is available for sale.
