Clewiston Chamber hosts ‘Shop Local’ campaign

The Clewiston Chamber of Commerce wants to remind the community to shop locally this holiday season.

To encourage residents to take advantage of the great gift ideas available at Clewiston’s small businesses, the Chamber is sponsoring a Shop Local raffle. It’s easy to participate: simply stop by the Chamber of Commerce, located at 109 Central Ave, to pick up a stamp card. Then, shop at one or all of the 11 local vendors participating between now and Dec. 17 to collect five stamps to be eligible for the drawing.

The winner will receive a gift basket valued at over $300.

The winning stamp card will be drawn Dec. 17 at the monthly Chamber Social. The December social will be held at First Bank in Clewiston beginning at 5:30 p.m. All Chamber Socials are open to the public.

Call the Chamber at 863-983-7979 for more information about the Shop Local raffle.

Decorating Contest

To get into the holiday spirit, the Chamber is also sponsoring a Holiday decorating contest this season.

Decorated store fronts, windows, Christmas trees, even cubicles will be judged by the Chamber staff through the month of December. The winner will receive a plaque that will act as a floating trophy from year to year.

Businesses and individuals are welcome to participate in the contest which is free for Chamber members and $10 for non-chamber members.

Call the Chamber at 863-983-7979 for more information about the holiday decorating contest.
