Thank you to all who attended the 13th Annual State of the City Address with Stratford Mayor Dan Mathieson. As always, it was a very informative morning and we are all looking forward to being part of the exciting progress we're sure to keep seeing in the City of Stratford - The Municipality. Thank you to our Chamber photographer, david.i.am photography for taking such great pictures!
Thanks to all the amazing women who attended this years International Womens Day Breakfast, put on by the Zonta Club of Stratford, @The Stratford Perth Centre For Business and the CFDC Chamber Ladies Learning Group (a collaboration between the Stratford & District Chamber of Commerce and Perth Community Futures Development Corporation). Our keynote speaker was Ginny Dybenko, an inspiring "disruptive" leader who provided five life lessons to help us all reach our full potential. Her talk was followed by four break-out sessions in finance, goal-setting, decor and fashion.
We had an amazing turnout to February's Business After Five hosted by the Stratford-Perth Humane Society. Their new donor wall is up and awards were given to Eddie Matthews and Jeff Orr for their incredible contribution to the campaign. If you haven't seen the new facility, be sure to stop by for a visit!
Kindness is available to us every day. We can always make a difference in the lives of those around us, even with just a smile or a compliment. Thanks to everyone who came to our Open House for free coffee and snacks and paid it forward with 185 lbs of food donated to the food bank. We didn\'t get photos of all of you, but you know who you are.
Perth Community Futures Development Corporation and the Stratford & District Chamber of Commerce have partnered to bring you Ladies Night Out events! Thanks to everyone who came and participated in Tampon Tuesday - donations were given to The Emily Murphy Center and Optimism Place Women\'s Shelter and Support Services. Check out the photos, tag yourself and your friends, and be sure to sign up for the next event in January (hint: curling).
In partnership with BDC, Libro, Perth Community Futures, and the Stratford Perth Centre for Business, we welcomed Chief Economist Helmut Pastrick to talk to us about the current state of Ontarios Economy, and what he foresees coming for Southwestern Ontario in the near future. Thank you to all who attended. #SBW2016
