Chamber to host ‘Shoptober’ event

Lancaster by the Bay Chamber of Commerce and some 30 participating businesses will present the fourth annual “Shoptober by the Bay” during October.

“The Lancaster by the Bay Chamber merchants are excited to join together to create a shopping event which highlights the unique items our businesses have to offer, while providing an opportunity to bring visitors to our area,” said executive director Anne Paparella.

Tickets are $20, said Paparella. Proceeds will benefit Health Harvest Food Bank. Last year $1,000 was donated to the Area 28 Special Olympics.

Tickets will be sold throughout September and October in stores in Irvington, White Stone and Kilmarnock…
