Three members of the local Chamber will be attending the Manitoba Chambers annual meeting next week. It is being held at the Elkhorn Resort and Conference Centre with Dianne Russell, Becky Cianflone and Korey Eastman attending.
The Chamber is preparing for the annual Flin Flon Trout Festival. They are looking for volunteers for the Festival barbeque set for June 29th. They are also looking for help with their Flinty float for the parade.
The Chamber has received funding for a summer student from the Canada Summer Jobs Program.
President Karen MacKinnon reported they have received an email from Travel Manitoba regarding their annual tourism awards. She said they have awards for special events and these could promote our community. Ideas suggested were last year’s Homecoming, the fishing derbies we hold, community choir performances, Culture Days and other events. They will take a further look at nominating an event or person for an award.
Dianne Russell reported she is working on hosting a northern Chamber of Commerce conference here in Flin Flon on Saturday September 8th. The first such conference was held in Thompson last year.
