This was the second year for the Christmas Passport, created and sponsored by Flat Rock, Our Hometown, and the program is growing successfully. The main goal of the program is to encourage participants to shop local and support Flat Rock businesses. One participant, new to the program this year, stated “I found a new hair dresser who referred me to other great local businesses. I am finding things in Flat Rock I never knew about! I hope you continue to do this program every year!”

The program runs from late October to mid-December, giving participants roughly six (6) weeks to complete their passports by visiting local businesses for stamps in exchange for purchases. We thank all of our businesses and participants for shopping local and shopping Flat Rock!
