Springtime is funtime on The Summit.

Appreciation was extended to the Copper Ski Patrol headed by Hagen Lyle.

Summit County Chamber of Commerce Director of Marketing Jeanette Jones-Campagna just announced the US Army National Guard will hold its 2009 Logistics Management Seminar at Keystone Resort and Conference Center on May 4-8, bringing 1,400 attendees.

“Though traditionally a ‘quiet’ time for Summit County following the close of most of our resorts and ski areas, this can be an opportunity to bring some welcomed unanticipated folks into your businesses and establishments,” says Jones-Campagna.

If you’d like to offer a “special” to the group, contact their conference coordinator, Christine Glynn, 703-607-9786 or Christine.Glynn@-us.army.mil
