Boom Lake Log Jam

A big check from the state Department of Tourism to the Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce to promote a growing event this summer.

Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett presented a $20,000 marketing check to the Chamber.

Chamber Director Dana DeMet says the Joint Effort Marketing grant, or JEM grant, will be used to bring visitors here...

'....the JEM grant we were awarded is for marketing the Boom Lake Log Jam in Rhinelander June 19-21 at Hodag Park. What we're using the money for is targeting markets in central Wisconsin as well as the Fox Valley...."

A new event promoting northern Wisconsin's logging heritage is coming to Rhinelander next summer.

Ken Krall talked with Chamber of Commerce Director Lara Reed about the Boom Lake Log Jam.

Reed says there will be things to do for the whole family.
