“It was a welcome opportunity to be a part of the 2011 Golf Tournament and introduce our award winning hotel to the attendees. Our “longest Marshmallow drive” was well received and we were able to meet many chamber members in a fun atmosphere! Fun in the sun with work tied in too!”
Dallas Storey, Owner/Operator of Bin There Dump That
"Being new to the Okanagan, as well as starting a new business, we knew we had to get connected with the business community. The Chamber of Commerce was a must for us to start getting our brand of business out into the public. We joined the Chamber long before we even opened our doors for business. By doing so, we were able to take full advantage of cost savings, as well as taking part in networking functions. If I was to go back and do it again, I would have become a member sooner."
