What is one of the hottest items of the pre season — its the “Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition” by Carol V. Aebersold and Chanda A. Bell. This year the Downtowns Miramichi will be offering their shoppers at participating stores the opportunity to enter a ballot to win an “Elf on the Shelf”. The Elf has magical properties which allow him to fly around at night and report directly to the North Pole.
Mavis Williamson, General Manger DowntownS Miramichi, states “This promotion encourages good behaviour, literacy and a fun way to say thanks for shopping in our downtowns.”
The Newcastle Business District will be conducting their draw on December 5th at its Thursday night sleigh ride around Queen Elizabeth Park, and the Historic Chatham Business District will be doing its draw at the 28TH Annual Parade of Lights on Dec. 6th. This way the scout elf, will have lots of time to report directly to Santa.
