COMING SOON: Holiday Shopping Passports

We are constantly striving for more ways to encourage local commerce and support our member businesses.  This holiday shopping season, we are not only encouraging people to shop local... we're giving them an incentive to do so, and at NO COST to shoppers OR our members.

Starting on Small Business Saturday (November 29) and running through the Friday before Christmas, we will launch our first Holiday Shopping Passport.  As local shoppers visit any Chamber member business, they can check off their passport boxes and can earn a special prize once it's filled up.

These FREE Holiday Shopping Passports will be available for pickup at the Chamber office and in select local businesses to be announced.  More information, including when passports area available and locations to get yours, will be available at

Thank you for your continued support of your Chamber and local businesses.  As always, shop small & buy local this holiday season!
