The Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce is reducing the number of general meetings they hold. They will hold one general meeting per month instead of two and it will be on the third Tuesday of each month with the exception of March when the meeting will be on the second Tuesday. The idea is to promote a higher attendance at their general meetings.
Local wrestler Carson Lee thanked the Chamber for their support. The Chamber sponsored Hunter and Carson Lee’s quilt raffle. Carson is off to Junior Nationals for under 20 in March in Saskatoon. President Karen MacKinnon thanked them for promoting our community at competitions they attend around the world where they display the city of Flin Flon flag.
Tim Smith suggested the Chamber look at how we can encourage people from the Saskatchewan side to continue to come to our community now that the obstetrics program has been suspended at the local hospital. He noted the effect this is having on the local business community. The Chamber has invited the Chief and Council from Pelican Narrows to meet with them to discuss what the Chamber can do to work with them. It was also suggested the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation be encouraged to add their voice to those who want to see the return of obstetric services.
