Steamship Days and island transport on Chamber meeting's agenda
To the Editor:
A very informative and productive meeting of the Bowen Island Chamber of Commerce was held at Evergreen Hall last Monday. President Rod Marsh thanked last year’s directors who stepped down and welcomed Theresa Anderson and Susan Pratt for joining the board. Following the formalities and introductions, the discussion went to Steamship Days that are in the first stages of creating and placing the committee and recruiting volunteers for the July 10 to14 event. The participation in the 2013 Vancouver Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show was discussed. Transportation was the last order of the evening and the conclusion of the discussion was that a municipal licensed hybrid shuttle/taxi would make a lot of sense. The evening ended with the welcome to new member Glen Cormier of the Bowen Island Pub and a thank-you to Maureen Armstrong for her hospitality at Evergreen Hall.
