“We are ready to shop.” This was the consensus among the large group of primarily women who visited Hardy from several of the States Department of Parks and Tourism Visitor Centers offices on a familiarization tour hosted by the Ozarks Gateway Tourist Council. The group was welcomed Sept. 26 at the Old Stonehouse Bed and Breakfast in Hardy before hitting the streets to enjoy the local shops. The event was held last week and was sponsored by the Ozarks Gateway Tourism Council.
Adam Davis, President of the Ozarks Gateway Tourist Council led the group to the welcome reception from Mammoth Spring.
On Sunday Sept. 22, 2013 at approximately 11:45am a vehicle was vandalized in the public parking lot that is next to the Words Afterwords business. If anyone has any knowledge to those individuals that are responsible for this please contact us with that information.
If your information helps prove who the person is that did this act of vandalism then FOHA will pay $100 reward for that information.
It is sad that tourist in the area who are visiting would have something done to a vehicle in broad daylight. This is a rare problem, but one that must not be ignored, and finding those responsible will hopefully prevent other incidents like this from happening again.
