Very shortly, several businesses within Merrickville will be displaying a small blue and white sign in their front windows to help guide visitors to points of interest in and around the village.
The sign simply says le boat, le Welcome in blue lettering and on the bottom is a lowercase “i” in a circle, the international symbol for information.
The information sign campaign is an initiative of the Merrickville and District Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber of Commerce president, Karl Feige said the project is intended to be a welcome for boaters and other tourists from the Merrickville business owners.
He said the business owners posting the signs have indicated to the Chamber of Commerce they are willing to answer any questions visitors might have about facilities within the village and are willing to give directions to such places as restaurants, washrooms, accommodations, the bank or the LCBO.
