Stuart Harrison: Four Local Chambers Team Up For Hometown Holiday


Hometown Holiday is a marketing initiative of the four local Chambers of Commerce in Peterborough, Lakefield, Havelock and Millbrook.

It’s a reminder of the importance of supporting local businesses, from retailers to restaurants, from artisans to artists. So, while you go about your business, don’t forget about local businesses and farmers ‘and manufacturers’ markets this holiday season. #HometownHoliday.
