Denim Day
Apr 24 all-day

In 1992, an 18 year old in Italy was sexually assaulted by her driving instructor and he was convicted. In 1999, the High Court overturned the conviction declaring that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them himself; therefore, the victim must have willingly participated. Women of the Italian legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans.

Today, all around the world, organizations coordinate community-wide Denim Days to show support of survivors and raise awareness about the crimes of sexual assault.

Free AirBNB Training sponsored by MACED @ Pine Mountain Grill
Apr 30 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Property owners interested in sharing space with travelers will learn how to list their properties with Airbnb and start earning income through a two-part training that begins Tuesday, April 23rd.

A partnership between Letcher County Tourism and the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED), the training includes two sessions over the course of two weeks, for a total of six hours. Developed with the guidance of nine Airbnb hosts from across eastern Kentucky and facilitated by an Airbnb superhost, the hands-on workshop will teach participants how to:

• Develop an Airbnb listing
• Market their property
• Comply with local taxes and regulations
• Connect with local tourism efforts for maximum visibility

The typical rural Airbnb host earns $3,300 annually. Property owners keep 97 percent of the listing price when they list with the online home-sharing site.

Training sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 30th from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM in the Pine Mountain Grill banquet room. Food will be provided. Pre-registration is encouraged to help Tourism better prepare.
