SUNDAY – DECEMBER 19th 2021
This date is provided vaccines are widely distributed, there are no upticks or emergency measures taking place in our state or county. Please help keep Washington open by practicing covid safety measures. Let’s all make 2021 very different from 2020.
THE 2020 STORY
Only Coupeville’s snow people gathered in a large group in front of the museum for the 2020 Red Ticket Drawing.
For 2020 it was sad and a little rough to have to go online for the 20th Anniversary of Red Ticket. For 19 years we’ve met in front of Island County Historical Society Archives and Museum in that big bundled up, hot chocolate drinking crowd. But of course, the health and safety of our community came first for 2020. BIG thanks to all the participating shoppers, dinner’s and sipper’s and the participating businesses.
According to our records 2020 was a break out year for the Red Ticket! Ironically it was a real boost for local businesses and our local economy having people staying so close to home. Even with online sales surging, shoppers came out and supported local businesses in a big way. A $11,000.00 plus uptick in a year like 2020 is a bright spot for all of us.
3 year history of the number of Red Tickets given out – each worth $20.00
2020 – 22,545 = $450,900
2019 – 21,974 = $439,480
2018 – 19,743 = $394,860
