Congratulations and Farewell to Georgia Stanley
Many of you know and love See Plymouth Director of Operations Georgia Stanley. She has faced enormous challenges over the past year dealing with the illness of her husband. While he has stabilized, their way of life has changed, and Georgia has decided to retire so that she can stay at home to care for him. The staff honored her at a farewell lunch yesterday and the Destination Plymouth Board will honor her at its November board meeting.

If you would like to send her an email, a card or message of hope and encouragement, you can send it to us, and we will see that she receives it. Email Lea.Filson@SeePlymouth.com or send to 4 North Street, Plymouth, MA 02360.
Legislative Insight on Tourism In Plymouth County Event Friday, October 30
We still have room for around twenty more people to join our virtual annual Tourism Legislative Breakfast on Friday of this week at 8:30 am. Registration closes at noon on Thursday. We have an amazing lineup of speakers and there will be questions at the end. Sign up and we’ll send along the zoom link. It’s free, but you’ll have to make your own breakfast.
Membership & Advertising
We are gearing up for our annual membership drive. While we are all cutting costs due to the pandemic, please consider renewing your membership. If we don’t all join together and invest in promoting our destination, it will lengthen the time it will take to bring visitors back to our area. On our end, we are cutting costs wherever we can and being strategic about our plans to promote the town and county of Plymouth using the best metrics available for the industry. As you rebuild, we pledge to you that we will do everything in our power to bring visitors back when the time is right. In the meantime, we will keep our destination top of mind, so no one forgets us. If you have questions, please email me or Deputy Director Paula Fisher. Our staff email is at the bottom of this update.   

Our radio media tour last year around Thanksgiving brought nationwide publicity about Plymouth on national, regional, and local radio stations. We partnered with Plymouth 400 and Plimoth Patuxet Museums. It was such a success that See Plymouth will make it an annual ad buy. In a future update, we will share the results of our efforts for this year. 

A Word About COVID
While the pandemic rages in fall and winter, we must all be safe. Wear your mask and social distance. Visitors have told us they drove to Plymouth this season because of our mask mandate. It is important that we make everyone feel safe, both local and tourists, but it is more important that we keep ourselves safe. I will end today with one of my favorite Irish sayings. Be well…

May neighbors respect you,
trouble neglect you,
the angels protect you,
and Heaven accept you.
