Chamber meets next week

Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes will be the guest speaker at next week's chamber luncheon meeting in Williams Lake.

Welcome to our newest member:  Clear View Accounting Corp.

We invite you to attend our general meeting luncheon on July 30, from at 11:45 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Signal Point Restaurant.

The chamber offers you the opportunity to meet other like-minded businesses and talk about the issues that concern them most.

We ask that you help us and the restaurant by reserving your seat by Tuesday with a call to 250-392-5025.

The cost for lunch is still $16 for members and $25 for others.

Members are encouraged to enter one of our draws for $1 and win some great prizes such as having your business profiled compliments of The Williams Lake Tribune and Cariboo Country and the Goat.

If you wish to donate an item for our draws, please let us know.

Our guest speaker will be the Honourable Coralee Oakes – Minister of Community Sport and Cultural Development and our Cariboo North MLA.

Congratulations to all the volunteers who worked so hard leading up to and during the events around the Williams Lake Stampede this year.

Once again we were so happy to be part of this historic event which brings thousands out to enjoy all the events around it.

Thanks also to all the members who support it in some way; pancake breakfasts, auto racing, rodeo, parade and of course Canada Day!

There will be no meeting in August and our next general meeting will be Sept. 24 and we have a number of excellent speakers lined up for all meetings.

Oct. 29 is our annual general meeting and election of officers.
