First Bite of Beaver Island to be held October 5th.

Beaver Island's culinary talent will be featured Saturday, October 5th from 4 to 7 p.m.. Both professional and amateur chefs will participate in the first ever event of its kind on the Island. Each chef or restaurant will sell special small portions of their fare in the $5.00 and under price range. This will allow diners to sample a wide variety of food during "Bite of Beaver Island," which will be held on the Convent lawn downtown.

Chef Deborah Harwood will coordinate the event. Our Chamber of Commerce Director Steve West is handling marketing and advertising. "I participated in an event like this several years ago in Bozeman, Montana, and it proved to be very popular," said Harwood.

"This 'prototype event' has great upside potential and add-on possibilities for future years. The Chamber's plan is to make 'Bite of Beaver Island' an annual fall event," said West. Mark your calendars for October 5th. And if you have any questions, contact Deborah Harwood at 448-2239 or the Chamber of Commerce at 448-2505.

In other Chamber news, Steve West has announced that the 2003 Membership Drive will kick off on October 1st. A brochure outlining the advantages of joining will be mailed out shortly thereafter. So far this year, the Chamber has had over a thousand phone calls, 1,700 visitors to the office, and 28,000 visitors to its web site.
