Over the past week, you might have noticed the many Airstream RVs at the Mineola Civic Center and RV Park. The Airstream rally in Mineola was a smashing success. Quite an impact is made by these large RV events at the civic center.
Over the 5 days of the rally, 66 local businesses were patronized by the RVers and $30,139.78 was spent in those businesses. Add to that the $22,984 spent at the civic center and the economic impact of the event is $53,123.78 for Mineola.
Charlotte Hall, manager of the Mineola Civic Center and RV Park, collects receipts from the guests for a grand door prize given away on the last day of the event. This drawing generates a tracking mechanism for merchants.
The Mineola Civic Center and RV Park is a very nice, and very useful public facility for the citizens of Mineola. It also works to spur commerce.
Congratulations to Charlotte and Terry on a job well done.
