"Cheboygan Bucks" to Promote Local Spending

Posted: Updated:

You hear it all the time, "Buy Local."

One Cheboygan County community came up with a program to make that happen.

The Cheboygan Area Chamber of Commerce will be offering what they're calling "Cheboygan Bucks."

Starting Friday, anyone can buy "Cheboygan Bucks" from the chamber of commerce, and use them at participating businesses that are chamber members.

The new program is a way to keep local money in Cheboygan.

9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Eric Davis have more.
