Chamber of Commerce Looks Back At Busy Year

At its AGM last Monday at the Legion Hall, members of the Caroline & District Chamber of Commerce received a report from Chamber Manager Deana Knight on events and activities hosted by the chamber in 2008. They included a Community Meet and Greet in January, the May Long Weekend Parade, Canada Day Celebration, Federal and School Division Election Forums and Christmas Lightup. An ongoing enterprise and income generating activity for the chamber is the management of the Burnstick Lake Provincial Campground which is contracted out to private individuals every year.

After several years of service, Julie Oliver handed over her responsibilities as President to Reg Dean who was instrumental in reviving the chamber in about 2002.

The chamber is an active member of the Caroline community which is reflected in an annual dollar turnover of about $40,000.
