The Jefferson County Tourism Commission would like to take this opportunity to thank the Arnold Tourism Commission, Festus Tourism Commission and the Pevely Tourism Commission for their support in the start up of the JCTC. We would also like to thank the Jefferson County Growth Association for their continued efforts and support through these last few months in helping to form the JCTC. This plan has been in the works for many, many years now. A lot of thinking and planning by many JCGA Board Members has gone into this venture which has finally become a reality. We look forward to the road ahead and where we can take it!

Thank You,

Jefferson County Tourism Commission Board Members
