Passport to Good Eats
Every year the Chamber hosts a month long event called Eat, Drink, Washburn. Eat, Drink, Washburn starts the 2nd week in May and ends the 2nd week in June. Participants gather stamps for a passport from participating businesses. Stamps are awarded when you spend $10 or more at the business. Collect at least three stamps and then you can turn the passport into the chamber to be entered into a drawing for $50 in Bay Bucks.
