Village merchants continue to sponsor countries from around the world in their stores, as well as stamp passports for those who wish to enter their names in the drawing for one of three fabulous prizes -- a weekend spa getaway in Skaneateles, an overnight stay at the Colgate Inn for New Year's Eve, and Dinner and a Movie for two. Passports have become popular with local shoppers and encourage residents and visitors alike to support local businesses and enjoy the fun of learning about how holidays are celebrated around the world.
The Hamilton Business Alliance (HBA) has sponsored the first annual A World of Holidays, celebrating global community right here in Hamilton. To learn more about the HBA and activities the organization sponsors all year 'round, attend their regular membership meetings held the first Wednesday of the month at the Colgate Inn. For information, or to obtain a passport, call 824-2300.
