It’s Time For WIMBY!

It’s time for WIMBY!


                What’s In My Back Yard?                                                 


                          May 16 and 17, 2009                                

   WIMBY is a chance for local residents and front line staff to visit and explore our tourism attractions as a visitor would so that we can all become familiar with what is in our own back yard.  We can all become ambassadors and stewards of Gloucester’s incredible resources as we work together to bring tourism dollars into the community.
   Special WIMBY buttons and lists of WIMBY sites will be available at participating venues and at the Cape Ann Chamber office on Friday and Saturday.
