Recognizing Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association For Fifty Years of Service
Congressman Mo Brooks
of Alabama in the United States House of Representatives
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commend the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association on its fifty years of dedicated service and proclaim September 2014 as Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association Month. Established in 1964, the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association’s most important goal is to stimulate the economic and cultural development of North Alabama through the tourism and travel industry.
Representing the sixteen counties of North Alabama and an ever-expanding membership base, the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association is committed to expanding, and not duplicating, the objectives or efforts of local associations, organizations and chambers of commerce that represent specific industry components.
The Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association is committed to sharing with the rest of Alabama, the South and the nation the great attractions, festivals, restaurants, and other entertainment options that North Alabama has to offer. From the W.C. Handy Music Festival in Florence and the Riverfest in Decatur to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville and the Limestone Sheriff’s Rodeo in Athens, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
I congratulate the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association on their fifty years of unparalleled success and wish them well and best wishes as they continue to promote the North Alabama region.
