The Chamber also asks businesses and residents to use the #shoplocalvw hashtag. Members of the community or others who shop locally and use the #shoplocalvw hashtag will be entered into a weekly prize drawing. It is as easy as posting a picture to Facebook or Instagram, and using the #shoplocalvw!

Businesses throughout the community have donated prizes to be included in weekly contests, with winners to be drawn and announced on Fridays throughout the months of June and July. There is no limit to how many times a person can be entered or win. 

The Chamber had a special “thank you” to Sister’s Embroidery & More for partnering to make the shirts to make this program possible.
