Catch the Holiday Spirit and Win $50!

We are so proud to be able to bring this to the people of Rainier and Clatskanie.  The Rainier Chamber of Commerce is joining together with the Clatskanie Chamber of Commerce and offering YOU a chance to win one of three $50 gift certificates.  As part of the Keep It Local campaign, the new spirit cards have just arrived at area businesses in Rainier and Clatskanie.

HolidaySpirit

For every $10 you spend with any of the merchants listed on this card, or for every transaction you make, or dollars you donate, you get an X marked in the box.  Turn in your full card at Saint Helens Federal Credit Union for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.  There will be three given away in Rainier and three in Clatskanie.  But, you can’t win unless you play, so get your card today from any of the merchants listed or from Saint Helens Federal Credit Union or Clatskanie PUD.
