As a two-time Chamber of Commerce Booster of the Year recipient, I was particularly moved and impressed by the recent efforts of a number of individuals and local businesses for the manner in which they all got on board to support the Steamship Days group's decision to spearhead a booth at the upcoming Vancouver Outdoor Adventure Show. Good on everyone for such a wonderful team effort to market and promote everything our community has to offer in the name of outdoor adventure and related commercial activities.
Against the backdrop of the concerns with the ferry changes, the demise of the local Chamber of Commerce and no other group promoting the wonderfulness of our community, which is Within Reach, Beyond Comparison, this spirited effort confirms "where there is a will, there is a way."
At the expense of omitting some core volunteers, on behalf of the community I thank Alan Mills, Glenn Cormier, Susan Pratt and Maria Steernberg for their leadership efforts and as well the number of businesses who have kindly donated money toward the booth rental and items for the numerous prize raffle draw baskets. Last but not least, thanks to the volunteers who will be staffing the Bowen Island booth.
Let the show begin.
