MU Extension to host "Cultural Heritage Tourism and the Arts" program

A program called "Cultural Heritage Tourism and the Arts" is coming to the Heartland.

The University of Missouri Extension office in Macon will be hosting the event Tuesday, February 11th. The program will be held at the Comfort Inn in Macon.

The program features several speakers, including those from the Hannibal Arts Council and the Walt Disney Hometown Museum. The program will focus on the importance of bringing tourism to Northeast Missouri, and making tourists aware of the different opportunities the state has to offer.

"We really want to promote tourism, but primarily we want to educate people about all of the culture and cultural things and heritage that we have in our area," said Jane Hunter, MU Extension Human Development Specialist.

The deadline to register for the program is January 31st. The cost is $25 per person, and checks should be made payable to University Extension.
