Caterer needed. Please respond by Sept 30th

McBride & District Chamber of Commerce hosted a very successful and
enjoyable Christmas Banquet last year after taking a hiatus from doing the
annual Christmas Gala. With the encouragement of our members and community,
we are looking to hold the 2017 Christmas Banquet in the McBride Community
Centre on December 9th, 2017.

We are seeking a caterer.

Last year our dinner was for 123, we therefore anticipate 120+ attending.
The maximum would be 160.

If you are interested in catering this dinner, please contact Linda Fry
250-569-0138 or lindafry@telus.net <mailto:lindafry@telus.net> for more

McBride and District Chamber of Commerce is feeling happy.

Spring has finally arrived. We have a new Hair salon in town now, The Rusty Iron, and now another new business is going into the old IGA store front. The building looks great. Our main street is looking revitalized. What a way to start the spring off.
