The 2019 campaign provides the opportunity for customers to visit your business, find the Major Muskrat plush, take a selfie, and post it on Facebook. Each time a customer posts a picture with the correct tags, the individual will get an entry into a drawing for a fantastic prize.

With this campaign, we hope to draw new customers to your business as well as build community partnerships. The Where’s Major Campaign will last for on month in the 1st quarter of 2019. Here are some overall details:

  • Each Small Business member will receive a Major Muskrat plush toy to display in their business
  • People search for Major Muskrat plush toys at participating Small Business member establishments throughout the community.
  • When a Major Muskrat is found, individuals will take a selfie and post it on Facebook. They must tag your business, the Foundation, and #wheresmajor.
  • Each time a person posts a photo with the correct tags will count as an entry into the drawing for a large flat screen TV.
  • Daily clues of where to find Major Muskrat will be broadcast live on local radio stations and on social media

Our Main Objectives

To excite visitors about the past and inspire them to want to learn more about the people and events that ultimately shaped Michigan, the Great Lakes region and North America during the War of 1812

To be the premier site for research, study, exploration, experience and understanding of the American frontier and the War of 1812 in the Northwest territory, as a prelude to contemporary North America

To foster an appreciation for the human suffering and sacrifices that ultimately led to an enduring international peace between nations and the longest undefended border in the world
