Haywood county ambassadors, Carol Burrell, president of the Haywood County Hotel & Motel Association and Marion Hamel, executive director, set up and manned a Haywood County booth at a travel show at Fort Jackson, Army Base in Columbia, South Carolina.

"There were more than 1,000 active duty and retired military and their dependents in attendance," said Hamel.  "It was a worthwhile and enjoyable venture."

The association plans to do more travel shows in the future.
