TV Programs Aired – Information Requests Coming in!

In talking with Chamber Director Mary Hillman yesterday, the recent airing of Big Stone Lake fishing segments on Midwest Outdoors TV has brought phone calls and emails from Florida, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota & North Dakota!  Mary also gave out the Chamber Website address on the segment below – the Chamber website activity has more than doubled over any of the last four months for website visits!
