Got cabin fever? The Greater Meredith Program has your passport to get out and about during the month of March with amazing discounts, special offers, and fun-filled events offered by Lakes Region businesses and organizations, as well as a chance to win a prize-filled sap bucket that’s specially hand-painted by a local artist.
The Meredith Cabin Fever Promotion will run from March 1st through the 29th and will be celebrated by retail shops, restaurants, and other locally owned businesses all around Meredith Village. The Greater Meredith Program has printed up a Passport Game Card and Events Guide that can be found at participating businesses throughout the Village. Folks who visit any of the participating businesses during the month of March can get their passports stamped or initialed for each location, and with ten valid endorsements can then enter to win the “Cabin Fever” Grand Prize Drawing—a hand-painted traditional maple sap bucket filled with prizes from local businesses. Stamped passports should be dropped into the entry box at Mame’s Restaurant by 5 pm on Saturday, March 29th to be entered in the 5:30 pm drawing. Players do not need to be present to win.
