The Stratford Tourism Alliance is celebrating a successful year.  The S-T-A ended 2016 with a surplus of 110-thousand dollars.  The alliance has bounced back from being in the red in 2014.

The S-T-A says it welcomed more than 60-thousand visitors at its two centres last year and had more than 860-thousand hits on its website.

The alliance has also paid back 40-thousand dollars on a loan from the city and established a reserve fund.  The S-T-A held its annual general meeting this week.
