The Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business in Williams Lake and area. We promote the well being of business in Williams Lake and District, and foster a work-, stay- and play-at-home atmosphere to all residents.
Welcome to our newest member: Platform Properties.
The board and committee have started planning for the Business Excellence Awards on March 10, 2012. We have already received a number of tourism packages from around the province. The nomination forms are about ready to go public and we are confirming sponsorship for the event. If you are interested in having lots of fun in the planning of our largest social business event of the year, we would love your involvement.
Our third annual Made in the Cariboo Fall Fair will be held this Saturday, Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tourism Discovery Centre. We welcome everyone to come down and see all the Christmas decorations and enjoy the wonderful gifts available to help with your Christmas shopping ideas.
Our year end is Nov. 30 and the 2012 membership dues and decals will be sent out Dec. 1. Thank you so much for all the support you have given over the past year and we look forward to working with you all in 2012. If there is something that we can assist with, please give us a call.

Chamber of Commerce November
Angela Sommer started Angelkeys Music Studio in 1994. She took her music training in Germany, performing and travelling throughout Europe with her high school. She also holds a diploma of technology from BCIT and has worked in the aircraft industry from 1987 to 1992. Angelkeys Music Studio offers lessons and coaching sessions in voice, piano, guitar, recorder and music theory and workshops for musical groups, bands and choirs.
The goal of the studio has always been to encourage people to enjoy music for a lifetime and to build life skills in each student. Not everyone wants to be a performer, but there is no reason why everyone can’t learn to play an instrument or sing for enjoyment. Students are taught according to their abilities and goals. Lessons span a variety of music styles from baroque and classical to country, pop, jazz and improvisation. Students can take classical and modern music exams, participate in festivals and competitions and sing and play in many community events. Some have gone on and made music and performance their career. Music is an integral part of Sommer’s life and she enjoys sharing it with people. She also offers a children’s choir and a teen vocal group on Friday evenings.
In her spare time she enjoys biking and volunteering as a ski patroller at Mt. Timothy and was elected as a director of the Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce.
To contact Sommer, call her at 250-305-4784 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
