Chamber of Commerce

March 30, 2012

Welcome Members,
The Federal Budget came out yesterday, I have attached an Analysis from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
The new board has been sworn in, and now their work begins. Thank you directors for stepping up in this important role.
Thank you and congratulations to the Mentors and Rising Stars. It was a great year with the stars stepping into their power. We wish them well for the future. We will be running the program again in September, watch out for details on becoming a mentor. 
Did you know that as of May 5, TD Canada Trust will be open from 9am - 3pm on Saturdays?
Membership dues have been sent, thank you to those who have paid already. If you have not received your invoice, call Carol. There are some major changes continuing with the Website, and your business may have been inadvertently missed.  Thank you Pam Mullins for this amazing photo. One good thing about the rain... beautiful rainbows.
