LES&I earns MIDDY award

Amanda Smith Rasnick

Lake Erie Shores & Islands®, the destination marketing organization for travel and tourism in Erie and Ottawa counties, was recently recognized for its group marketing, while its Group Sales Manager was recognized with the distinguished CMP designation.  

The “RETHINK” meetings and convention destination brochure was awarded a MIDDY award. This piece was created to entice corporate, association, and other meeting planners to “Rethink” the destinations typically used to host such events. With metropolitan amenities, and without the hassle of a big city, the goal of the brochure is to show that the Lake Erie Shores & Islands can offer more to meeting planners than just the perfect meeting space, and ask them to “Rethink” what a meeting or convention can be.

Elvis Alive at Edgewood

Jan Lenczowski, Activity Assistant, dancing with resident, Loraine Arnold, while “Elvis”, Brian Brenner, sings in the background.

Pink Cadillacs, 45 records, juke boxes, ice cream sodas, poodle skirts and balloons decorated the living room at Edgewood Manor as “Elvis” made his grand entrance.  Music echoed throughout the halls as “The King” performed an hours worth of his favorite tunes.  He shook his hips to the beat of the music while residents reached out to shake his hand.  Smiles were plentiful as the audience jitterbugged to old familiar songs taking a trip back in time at their 1950’s sock hop.
