DIGBY, N.S- The newly renovated visitor information center in Digby is now open to the public.

The staff at the VIC are thrilled with the renovations.
“We absolutely love it,” said VIC employee Duetta Comeau.
There are two new staff members at the VIC, Debbie Handspiker and Jill Burns. They will join the two returning staff members, Cheryl Forrest and Duetta Comeau.
Starting this year, every week there will be a weekly showcase.
VIC staff will offer demonstrations and explanations about local culture like the tides and seafood.
“Every week we’ll be highlighting something different,” said Forrest.
As well local businesses will be at the VIC throughout the summer displaying their experiences, like whale watching.
Inside the VIC there are business and restaurant brochures, as well as advertisements for local events and fundraisers.
The busy tourism season is quickly approaching, and the staff are looking forward it.
“We can’t wait,” said Comeau.
