Carowinds and AAA Carolinas have signed a new three-year sponsorship agreement.

AAA Carolinas members will receive advertising on Carowinds’ new in-park media network, and access to exclusive Carowinds ticket offers.

“This is a great collaboration between two Carolina companies,” said Travis Mincey, corporate director of strategic alliances for Cedar Fair, Carowinds’ parent company.

“AAA Carolinas has an incredible reputation and offers consumers great value through their services. Their commitment to providing drivers in North and South Carolina with the best services aligns strongly with our ability to reach millions of consumers throughout both states,” Mincey said.

The agreement marks the first major sponsorship at Carowinds following Cedar Fair Entertainment’s partnership with Time Warner Cable Media to be their exclusive third party representation for in-park advertising through their new media network, FunTV.

“Carowinds’ ability to reach millions of guests throughout the Carolinas while they are in the park and at home was very appealing to us,” said Jeff Monroe, chief marketing officer, AAA Carolinas. “This partnership allows our brand to engage our AAA members with great offers and incentives. It also allows us to reach those who may only know us for our roadside service and inform them about the Carowinds partnership, as well as other AAA discount partners.”

The designation is for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service.

The designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four areas: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. This is the fourth time that Rock Hill has earned the award.

▪ Agricultural producers seeking federal crop insurance must have their Highly Erodible Land Conservation and Wetland Conservation Certification form, commonly called form AD-1026, on file with the York U.S. Department of Agriculture service center by June 1.

Many farmers already have their certification on file since it’s required for participation in other USDA programs, including NRCS conservation programs. But producers, such as specialty crop growers who receive federal crop insurance premium subsidies and do not participate in other USDA programs, must now file a certification form with USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA).

Producers should visit the York’s USDA Center at at 1460 E. Alexander Love Highway in York before the June 1.

For information, call the York USDA office at 803-684-3137, ext 2.
