Hi to all,
What a great month March has been. At our March dinner meeting we were given a comprehensive presentation by our Mayor Mr John Kremastos, on the CCRC’s 12 months to date, and what their plans are for the future. All members enjoyed a great time networking over a delicious meal at Sapore’s.
The chamber is working on a proposal to hold a Shopping Enhancement Raffle in the leading months up to Christmas 2017, which is designed to promote and encourage increased shopping activity in the Innisfail Region. Details of this proposal will be made public in coming months.
I am pleased to announce that we are getting close to finalising our new home, consisting of office space, general meeting / training rooms and an Executive Meeting room. This facility is in the Cane Growers Building on the Grace Street side next to APM Employment. Once we complete some minor internal changes, we will be announcing an open date.
The Chamber also met with the Mayor and other officers from the CCRC to discuss the current MOU that exists between the Chamber and the CCRC. It was decided to continue it in its current form with some minor changes to positions and signatories. It is vital that the CCRC and the Chamber have an open and honest working relationship that will enhance our regions businesses.
The Chamber congratulates the Feast of the Senses Committee for another successful event this year and for the world record breaking Banana Split construction. My thanks to all who participated and creating this unique record.
April is shaping up to be another busy month for the Chamber with our Dinner meeting to be held at Brothers Leagues Club at 6pm on the 18th April.
