Let's make our community something to see so some of them will stop and linger awhile" suggested diane Robinson to Belfair Chamber of Commerce members at',last week's potluck picnic held ill Erma Roessel's back yard. diane's ideas of turning Belfair into a tourist attraction would involve the co-operation of the entire business community. The response from those present at the picnic was enthusiastic, although it was agreed that the project, if undertaken, was a big one and would have to be developed in stages. As a starter, diane would like to see all the buildings in the commercial center of town painted one color, maybe woodsy brown to fit in with the outdoor recreation atmosphere of the area. Paint would be provided and work parties would be scheduled to do the painting so no owner would be hit with unreasonable immmmmn mmnmmmmmmm m m m m m m m m ~, A Donation To m m THE BELFAIR | FIRST AID FUND m Sig.

Maybe an antique tool collection at the hardware store'? or a display explaining the brush-picking business at Delta Products? or... anything which would interest a visiting passer-by. Over and over again as a discussion ensued one heard the name of Leavenworth mentioned as a successful example of a small town whose businessmen banded together to plan a unified look to attract tourists. "'We already have the tourists going through town," said diane. "All we need is something attractive to make them want to stop and look around before they go on to one of the State Parks." Possibility of numerous brightly painted trash cans placed along the street was considered as well as an idea of having some large outside "ornaments" which would entice close inspection by tourists.
