New Office and New Networking Events

Lawrence Chamber News

The Strathmore Chamber loves nothing more than an opportunity to showcase local business. So we are pleased to be offering a new networking event ‘Business  After Five’.  Hosted by a Chamber member this is a great opportunity to create and renew contacts in the business community, and discover what local businesses have to offer. These events will run once a month from 5:30 – 7:30pm, are open to the public and free to attend.

The first Business After Five was held on August 17, hosted by Action Insurance. Attendees enjoyed refreshments, view Heather Robert’s lovely offices in the Aztec Building, chatted with staff and other attendees.

Restaurant, bar, organization, store front, or government office if you are a Strathmore Chamber member consider taking advantage of this relaxed atmosphere to network and enhance your local presence.  Call the Chamber office 403.901.3175 to see how you can host the next Business After Five.

Congratulations to all who took part in making Alberta Open Farm Days such a success. Field Stone Fruit Wines, Poplar Bluff Organics and Rocking R Guest Ranch are just a few of the agribusinesses who held outstanding events.  Thanks also to whoever was in charge of the weather; the weekend of August 20 and 21 was sunny and hot with spectacular Alberta sunsets thrown in for good measure.
