Albion Aglow to Begin on Small Business Saturday

AlbionLand, planned and organized by The Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce, was created three years ago by former City Manager Dr. Sheryl Mitchell and former Assistant City Manager Dr. Stacey Levin. The two had the intent of drawing people to downtown businesses and incentivizing local spending.  

To play the AlbionLand game, one must first receive a passport from either the Chamber of Commerce, the Ludington Center or any of the participating businesses. From Nov. 30 to Dec. 6, participants can then get their passports stamped at any of the over 20 participating businesses.  Participants must turn in their passports before Dec. 9 for a chance to receive prizes.

Besides the AlbionLand game, Albion Aglow will feature other events such as Cash Mob on Nov. 30 and Dec. 6, a Christmas tree sing-along and the Albion Aglow Parade, the latter of which are both both on Dec. 6.             

Eric Worley, President and CEO of The Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce, hopes that Albion Aglow can foster positive community interaction.  

“We are hoping to give the people of Albion a reason to come outside, be with their friends and neighbors, and enjoy the kick-off to the holiday season,” Worley wrote via email.
