'Fun Phone' project launched

January 22, 1998

There's a new way to find out about leisure events in Washington County any time of the day or night - the "Fun Phone."

The "Fun Phone" at 301-745-5772 is a recorded listing of weekly and special events.

The Hagerstown/Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau launched the 24-hour information line Thursday. Event listings will be updated each Friday.

"It's certainly not a new idea. It's just an old idea that's recirculated," said Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Ben R. Hart. "If we get a couple hundred calls a week, we'll consider it successful."

The phone line will complement the tourism bureau's site on the World Wide Web, expected to be up by March 31, Hart said.

People who want to have events listed can call the Convention and Visitors Bureau at 301-791-3246.

"We really want to become the clearinghouse for all special events," he said.
