Following the fun-filled tradition of “BOOing”, the merchants will have a chance to ‘BOO’ one another this year. Here is how it works: Find a business owner that you would like to surprise with a fall gift, sneak the gift onto their front door without them seeing you and then wait for them to find it. We have a kit containing everything you need to use. Just drop by or call the chamber office for a BOOing kit. Everyone enjoys this tradition adopted in many neighborhoods
