Shop Local changes for 2017

For 2017 to provide more flexibility to cardholders and to encourage visits to multiple member businesses: Card holders must present their card for validation when making any purchase (with no minimum purchase required) at FIVE different member businesses – the member business can validate two boxes OR the card can just have five different business validations to be eligible for the draw.
So remember to Shop Local and help support our local businesses

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
information.

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.
