This is the largest award the Dayton Chamber has ever received from Travel Nevada.
In 2020, the chamber received $ 3,500 and then an additional $ 14,150 in COVID-19 funds to print and distribute 30,000 cards of Dayton and Mound House. To date, a total of 18,000 cards have been distributed in California, Northern Nevada, and Lyon Counties.
In 2021, the chamber received $ 10,000 for printing and distributing 22,500 outdoor recreational brochures with an SUV map of the Pine Nuts and Flowery Range, as well as a listing of all neighborhood parks, RV parks, state parks, campsites, and nearby commercial accommodations. The brochure “Portal to the pine nuts and the gateway to Comstock” will be ready for dispatch in January 2022.
This 2022 award funds the additional distribution and printing of both the map and the brochure on outdoor leisure.
