NEW EXCITING PROGRAM TO INCREASE MEMBERS’ BUSINESS

· Chamber Bucks can be purchased from the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce, MM 31 by any individual or business.
· They come in increments of $10 ~ $25 ~ $50 · They are checks drawn on a dedicated checking account; the funds are guaranteed. Like any check, they expire after 6 months of issuing.
· Chamber Bucks can only be redeemed (spent) at participating Chamber member businesses
· An updated list of participating members will accompany each Bucks purchase.
· If a member does NOT wish to accept Chamber Bucks, they should let us know immediately.
· If the person spending the Chamber Buck buys an item less than the face amount of the check, change must be given to the customer, since the business will deposit and receive the full face value of the check.
· The “Pay To” line is deliberately left blank, so the check holder can write the check out to the business from whom they are purchasing items.
· If a business allows their Chamber membership to lapse, they are no longer eligible to redeem Chamber Bucks and their name will be removed from the list of businesses given to purchasers.
· Small laminated “cards” are available to post at your registers to remind your associates how to process the Bucks.

Seacamps Marine Science and SCUBAprograms are second to none. The location, on Big Pine Key, is ideal for their goal of instilling a love of the ocean in every camper whoattends, giving them the opportunity to explore the Florida Keys coral reefs, shallow bays, and mangrove islands. This, complemented by the outstanding staff and atmosphere, makes Seacamp an unforgettable experience. As a former camper turned staff member explains, The location isnt just ideal; its in the middle of paradise. And in describing the environment at camp, The family dynamic that develops between the staff and campers (both returning and new) in an 18-day session happens at no other camp. I believe this inclusive environment gives people a home away from home, where theyre constantly bettering themselves, their lives, and the lives of others simply by working hard to acquire skills they can apply to any context in life. A wide selection of Marine Science classes are available using boat trips, snorkeling, kayaking and laboratory experiences to teach campers basic to advanced concepts. Seacamp also offers several levels of SCUBA programs, including SCUBA for certification as well as SCUBA for Marine Investigations. Seacamps Aquatics program offers snorkeling lessons, sailing, and windsurfing. Seacamp offers residential camp, both 18 day sessions, ages 12-17, 7 day sessions, ages 10-17 and Daycamp, ages 10-13. Seacamp is proud of their efforts to aid in both marine life and ocean conservation education for both their local campers and those from other parts of the county and world.
