In August, the City of Caribou sent out a newsletter to businesses. One of the objectives was to get information on businesses that want to be listed when our new page (www.cariboumaine.org/visit) launches later this year. There are four categories: Places to Stay, Dining, Activities & Services. The local consultants we are working with have created the form in an online version to make it easier for you to get your information to us. Also, if you have a logo you would like us to use – please email that. We plan to do a monthly “feature business” once the website is up and going.

We appreciate you helping us welcome visitors to the area! Here is the link to the survey (or you can use the QR code):  https://forms.gle/u5N71M7ZAjG72xfg7

Thank you and please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions on how to promote our local businesses.
