The staff of businesses that caters to visitors is the frontline in the war to winning a greater share of tourism dollars for the entire tourist industry. In the minds of visitors, if staff is friendly, then the community is friendly.

The winner will be announced at the St. Mary Chamber of Commerce Banquet on Jan. 19 at Cypress Bayou Casino. The winner will receive a $150 check, jacket and a gift basket worth more than $200.
