From the Desk of the CEO Jill Raycroft

Before I look back on May – don’t forget our golf tournament on June 14th (or our mingle at Upfront Gallery & Home, June 5).  We know there are a number of tournaments to choose from – the Chamber tournament is “yours” so we hope you’ll consider coming out and joining us!  Don’t like to golf – it’s a best ball so even though we have a trophy, the score doesn’t really matter!  Dinner only is an option…  see below for details.

May was a month of catching up and pulling together some of our traditional Chamber activities – we hosted a mingle at Boston Pizza, our breakfast this week with Peninsula Employment Services and guest Warren Shepell – along with the much anticipated Chamber debate on May 24th as we prepare for the provincial election on June 7th.  We also piloted our “Lunch & Learn” series with successful results so if you have any topics of interest you’d like to know more about – let me know! 

I also had the pleasure of being an honorary judge to VIQs 11th Annual Dancing with the Stars - Is it any coincidence that many of the “stars” are also members? 

1st place winners: Carol Wiggins, McDougall Insurance & Chris Wiggins, Cool 100 / Starboard Communications

2nd place winters: Ashley Rushnell, Rushnell Family Services & Tom Zapletal, Belleville Senators

Honourable mention to Rhonda Barriage, Beauty Works Day Spa & Blair Gamble, Travelodge Hotel

Caitlin Wilkins, Intelligencer & Matt Rollins, Linguine’s Restaurant and

Mark Rollins, Kente Property Management (keeping it in the family but not dancing with his son) – each of whom helped entertain the hundreds of people in the audience!

And of course, Artfest pulled the artist out of 100s of children in the area down at Zwick’s Park last Saturday.  Take a look at some of the photos here
