The Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce met yesterday at the Friendship Center. A number of topics were discussed including Community Futures Greenstone teaming up with the Flin Flon Recycling Center to bring a cardboard challenge to the community in October. Becky Cianflone from Greenstone explains they are encouraging people to think more creatively and also to be more innovative and so they’re hosting an event where people can just build things out of cardboard like arcade games, hot wheels tracks, airplanes, whatever they see. She adds it’s really a great opportunity to build creativity in our community.
You can enter as a team of 3 to 5 or enter individually for the event taking place October 14th at Ecole McIsaac School. It’s free and you can get more information on their Facebook page.
The Chamber mentioned more events coming to town over the next few weeks including a Safe Manitoba workshop, Infusion Entrepreneurship Conference and Culture Days featuring over 100 events which will take place all over the community starting Friday.
