The Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams started Clearly Kosciusko in 2017 to connect visitors and residents to the lakes of Kosciusko County, Ind. The Lilly Center team saw a learning gap between what people knew and what they appreciated about the lakes in our community, and set out to provide the missing information: data-backed action steps that residents and visitors could take to protect and enjoy the natural resources in the county.
In 2018, however, the Lilly Center realized its vision needed to expand and include Kosciusko County’s numerous economic and tourism benefits. The Kosciusko County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce, and the Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation came on board soon after.
But the vision still wasn’t quite right. It missed the heart of the county.
Clearly Kosciusko members (like you!) were the missing piece of the brand’s vision. Our members are key to the health of the county, and to ensuring anyone can find the information they need to thrive here.
Think of Clearly Kosciusko as a megaphone: By using the brand, you amplify your business’s voice to connect with a broader message and audience. In doing so, you also show that you support your community. When one does well, we all do well.
As a member, you will gain many benefits. A few of the tangible ones are listed below. We will also share your social media content on Facebook and Instagram, and feature your business on our blog. It is free advertising! Anytime you use Clearly Kosciusko’s logo in your marketing (linked from your website, on a printed flyer, at a vendor booth), you will show your connection to and pride in the rest of the county.
