Board members for the Smoky River Regional Chamber of Commerce and Smoky River Tourism met at Tony’s Donair & Pizza in Falher on March 22 for their annual general meeting.
President Val Viens offered highlights of the past year for both organizations.
“We have worked very hard to bring these two groups together, to make them bigger and better,” says Viens.
“We have a great group with fantastic ideas for 2017 (and we are) looking forward to seeing our accomplishments.”
The bigger the group, the more that can be accomplished, she adds. This includes businesses from all of the regions, including farmers.
