Welcome to our newest members: Shields Brake and Muffler.
The BC Chamber of Commerce AGM was attended by Jason Ryll, Walt Cobb, and Claudia Blair from the Williams Lake Chamber this last May.
Delegates from around B.C. discussed several resolutions forwarded in March from the various Chambers. With our work with the BC Chamber of Commerce we have a larger voice for business in the province. Policy resolution sessions were well attended with a number of policies going forward to the Canadian Chamber in September.
The Visitor Centre is now open seven days a week 8 a.m. – p.m. Please feel free to stop in to get information on Williams Lake and area, or if you are planning a trip around B.C. we have many brochures to choose from.
We are all looking forward to the 87th Annual Williams Lake Stampede this year, from June 28th – July 1st.
There will be five performances starting on Friday afternoon and ending on Monday afternoon. We wish all the competitors the best of luck and hope the Stampede weekend goes well for everyone. If you have some time to spare the Stampede Association is always looking for some help.
The Chamber invites everyone to attend our General Meeting luncheon, Thursday June 20, which starts at 11:45 a.m. at Signal Point Restaurant.
Our guest speakers this month are John Winter – President and CEO BC Chamber of Commerce and Archie MacDonald general manager Council of Forest Industries.

With graduation ceremonies nearly done for most parents the Grade 12 students have been firming up their next steps. We are very fortunate to have Thompson Rivers University in our community. There are so many advantages like the lower cost of living, have the support of family and friends nearby, a campus with friendly accessibility and smaller class sizes. It is definitely one of the better choices for the first year.
