Each town manager or town committee will choose a winner and submit the photo to the Chamber.The photos will be shared on the Chamber’s FB page.The Traveling Trophy Committee will determine which business has the MOST holiday spirit.The winning business will receive a TRAVELING Trophy, and LOTS of free press through local and social media. The trophy remains with the winning business until December of 2019, when a new winner is chosen!
