New tourism group formed.Thursday, February 14th 2013
The Municipality of Argyle seems enthusiastic about a new tourism group and how it can nurture the industry.
The Bon Temps Tourism and Geotourism Society believes visitors' experience can be enhanced when they learn about local culture and traditions and

Vaughan Perret of Trout Point Lodge made a presentation to Argyle council Tuesday night.

Perret tells CJLS about what geotourism is and how the National Geographic Society plays a major role.
