Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s IODE Christmas House Tour is on the shelf, but local IODE members hope to see support for area florists and plant companies that have helped out with the tour in the past.
Members of the IODE Captain Garnet Brackin Chapter are holding contests from now until Dec. 18, where people are asked to visit the participating businesses to enter for a chance to win.
Find the IODE Captain Garnet Brackin Christmas decoration at your local florist and get your name in the draw to win a $50 gift certificate. Volunteers will hide the decoration at a different florist/plant company each week.
Each Friday afternoon, a draw will be made at that florist shop/plant company to give away a $50 gift certificate.
And on Dec. 21, there will be a grand draw for a gift basket worth more than $300 from local businesses in Chatham-Kent.
