The Central Oregonian "Our Town Christmas Giveaway," continues in today's publication on pages B1-B4. Please read the full entry rules on page B2, the contest has changed from last year on what you need to do to have an eligible entry for a chance at the over $1,500 in scrip and prizes being given away this Christmas Season.

We also encourage those playing the game to please take the time to check out the participating businesses and their holiday specials — and to shop locally. For without these businesses, the Central Oregonian would not be able to continue to bring you the "Our Town Christmas Giveaway."

Participating businesses are: Barney Prine's Steakhouse & Saloon, Bullseye Firearms, Ericksons Thriftway, Meadow Lakes Golf Course & Restaurant, Pack, Ship & More, Papa Murphy's Take-N-Bake Pizza, Pine Theater, Prineville Men's Wear, Robberson Ford of Prineville, Sears Hometown Store, Sunrise Pool & Spa, Sunset Hearth & Home and Wagner's Market Fresh IGA.

We have also included a coloring contest this year. There are three age categories for ages up to 12. The contest is sponsored by the Pine Theater with a different design each week.

We've also been "sampling" and providing free newspaper to various addresses in the Prineville area. If you enjoy receiving the newspaper in your mailbox, give us a call and subscribe. You'll save money off the retail price. A subscription also makes a great Christmas gift.
