Pin the Peninsula
Greetings Sequim & Dungeness Valley Tourism Friends,
This time last year, we wondered where everyone was? This year, we know - they're HERE! Our wonderful, inquisitive, excited-to-be-out-again visitors are HERE. And after months of quiet, you - our local visitor centers, hotels, restaurants, shopkeepers, convenience stores, gas stations and others - are working diligently to welcome and serve our guests. We understand that isn't always easy this year. Staffing shortages, traffic delays, long lines - it can sometimes add up to extra tension.
That's why the Olympic Peninsula Tourism Commission (OPTC) has come up with the enclosed buttons and stickers for you - Yes YOU! our front-line hospitality workers. We want you to know that we appreciate everything you do to give our visitors a positive experience - and sometimes we can all use a friendly reminder about the important (perhaps even essential) values that we hope our visitors and locals alike, will take to heart. With a little messaging assistance from our local wildlife, we've created the following buttons for you to wear: Share Respect (Elk), Patience (Blue Heron), Kindness (Olympic Marmot), and Joy (Orca).
So, wear them, share them, and collect them all if you wish! Give our visitors a reason to smile.
For trip-planning help and tourism information, feel free to refer visitors to the OPTC website, OlympicPeninsula.org. We invite you to drop us a line with any questions, comments, or concerns. And if you found these buttons and stickers helpful and want to tell us about is, we'd love your feedback.
Here's to a healthy and enjoyable tourism season full of respect, patience, kindness, and joy!
