Shop Local Passport update

The Shop Local Passport campaign, sponsored by the Gray New Gloucester Development Corporation, continues through Sept. 30. The goal for each shopper is to visit a minimum of 10 participating businesses and spend at least $25 at each of them. Information to verify the purchase is entered on the passport. Once a shopper returns their passport and the dated receipts from the qualifying purchases to the GNGDC, they will be entered into a drawing for a $500 cash prize.

Passports must be returned to the GNGDC at P.O. Box 843, Gray, ME 04039 by Oct. 5. Complete rules, an interactive map to the participating businesses and the downloadable passport can be found at
