MORRISBURG – South Dundas has won a marketing award for promoting tourism while embracing the coronavirus pandemic.
It won in the marketing category for municipalities with a budget less than $200,000, for its “Welcoming Facemask Project.”
The Economic Development Association of Canada judges thought the mask messaging was “a way to welcome versus a barrier to a welcoming smile and had a nice personal touch,” South Dundas said.
The masks had colourful Muskoka chairs with the inscription “Welcome to South Dundas. How can I help you?”
The EDAC has 1,000 members across Canada.
