Chamber honors DGVR, Gail Hyer for community involvement
70Total Views Right photo, Chamber of Commerce president Mike Holstine presents the Individual of the Year award to Pocahontas County Convention and Visitors Bureau marketing specialist Gail Hyer. Chamber president Mike Holstine announced the Individual of the Year - Gail Hyer. As the marketing specialist for the Pocahontas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Hyer may be seen at any and every function in the county, offering a helping hand or taking photos to promote the event. Hyer came to Pocahontas County while researching her genealogy and stayed for the charm and beauty of the county she now promotes. Hyer is involved in the Genealogy Group, Pearl S. Buck Board of Directors, GoMarlinton, Chamber of Commerce, Pocahontas County Historical Society, Little Levels Heritage Fair, Pocahontas County Nature Club, Autumn Harvest Festival, RoadKill Cook-off and Marlinton Rotary Club. She also organized donations for the Marlinton fire victims and a benefit for fire departments after the 2013 fire. As Hyer took the stage, she stated, "I am flabbergasted." "I am surprised," she continued. "I am humbled that you think what I do matters, but I must tell you, as a volunteer I accept this on behalf of the army of volunteers in this county. We have a fabulous place to live and part of that is because we have people who take their own time and their own money and their own effort, and step up and do the extra to make it a great place." As part of her acceptance, Hyer asked the crowd to do her a favor. "I'm going to ask you - over the next couple weeks or months - whenever you see a volunteer doing something in this county - and you'll see them, they're at your tables - I want you to go up to them and say 'thank you. I appreciate you. I appreciate your time.' Tell them that what they do matters." Hyer started the "thank yous" by thanking Roger Trusler and Freda Jackson for their work as volunteers in the community.
Gail Hyer, with the Pocahontas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, considered the event a success.
"I think it was a great event," she said.
Gail Hyer, Marketing Specialist with the Pocahontas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said a visit to Marlinton is like a trip back in time.
"The interesting thing about Marlinton is - it's laid back, it's calm, it's quiet," she said. "We have cell service with AT&T and the lodging places have free wi-fi, so, if you want to stay in contact with back home, you have that option," Hyer said.
"People wait in line a long time so they can taste the food," said Gail Hyer, a marketing specialist for the Marlinton-based Pocahontas County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
