  1. Jack Nettis, President of the Growth Partnership’s Board, shared this comment with me. I am posting on his behalf. Both are good ideas, Jack. Thank you.

    “One thing that can be done is for the Visitors Bureau and Wine Industry promote an evening bus trip from Cleveland to several wineries to include dinner. They probably already thought of this.

    Another opportunity, for the sports enthusiast, would be to visit the Olympic Training venue, the Spire Center. Maybe Coach Meyer would be a host?”
