The first is a grant to help promote the Stihl Timbersports Series Championships, which is expected to bring 3,000 people and almost $150,000 to the area in September.
The Visitor's Bureau is planning a multi-media campaign to draw more people to the competition.
"We will be doing some things to enhance the event this year that weren't necessarily done last year," says Director Linda John. "We'll be adding more activities for the general publi to participate in addition to the spectator piece."
The second grant is for promotion of a fall tourism campaign called "Chippewa Valley - the Unexplored Wisconsin" designed for increasing interest in recreational activities.
