We also had the chance to catch up with Ashlyn, a Canada Summer Jobs Student and manager at the Athens and Area Heritage Museum, and Sally from the Mural. Please remember to SupportLocal

Support Local: 1000 Island Tourism

The beautiful 1000 Islands region has spectacular sights that attract people from all over the world. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dave Kouri, owner of 1000 Islands Helicopter Tours and Amy Kirkland from the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce about local tourism - and the challenges and opportunities in the tourism sector. Piloted by Bill Fox, I took a first-hand look at paradise from the sky along with Canada Summer Job students Paige Lux and Kiana Bachelder! 🚁 #SupportLocal
