Are you interested in vending at Merchants’ Night but don’t have a storefront? The Chamber has reserved the Knox Hall for this purpose. The North Slocan Trails Society would like to help spruce up Merchants’ Night by hosting a Chili Cook-off there… fun! With this cook-off to encourage traffic into the hall, we are thinking others might be interested in setting up sales in the hall. Please let us know (by replying to this email) if you are.
The Chamber’s Christmas Party will take place on Saturday, December 14th at the Silverton Memorial Hall. The hall will be open for cocktails at 6:00 p.m., dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. and dancing will follow. Tickets are $25 and will be available at New Market Foods, Silverton Building Supplies, and Nuru Coffee Bar. Must be over 19yrs to attend. Dinner will be catered by Melany McTavish (who cooked at the Golf Course this summer) and music will be provided by Good Time Entertainment (Deanna Reder). This is a fundraiser for the Slocan Valley Chamber of Commerce and a great winter social. We appreciate your support!
You may have also noticed that we are starting to go by the Slocan Valley Chamber of Commerce rather than the Slocan District Chamber of Commerce. This is part of a re-branding the Chamber is undergoing. Look forward to new graphics and an all new website in the near future!
Please be in touch if you have any questions or comments. The Chamber Board will not meet in December since they are busy organizing events, etc. And don’t forget to let us know if you’d like to set up a booth in the Knox Hall at Merchants’ Night.
Cheers, Jessica Rayner, Manager
