A while back I put a post on here about Louie being chosen as the one to represent Highlands County on the cover of their new “Lakes Guide” brochure.
Highlands County has well over a hundred lakes and the county is trying to attract tourist here to enjoy them. Well, they finally unveiled the new brochure yesterday. We were invited to a press conference. It was quite a big deal. The newspaper reporters, cameramen, and about eight County officials, Louie’s mom Jessie, I & my wife Lori, and of course the man of the hour, Mr. Louie were all in attendance. They gave Louie a stack of brochures to autograph and began asking a barrage of questions. The whole thing lasted about an hour and was something I’m sure we will never forget. Here’s Louie signing autographs.
30,000 brochures stacked up and ready to be shipped out to welcome centers all over the state of Florida with Louie’s mug on the front.
There’s really a lot of information in here. There’s a map of the county on the back with the lakes highlighted.
Oh well, I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Louie’s secret spots have been revealed. (Not!!!)
