November 21 Business After 5 with The Lynn Fee Team

“I didn’t realize how big her heart is” and… #RoomsOfFood!

That about sums up last night’s Business After 5 at the Lynn Fee Team‘s office. We had an incredible turnout for the last BA5 of the year – thank you to everyone who was able to come out!

Lynn and team opened their home (literally) last night to host an amazing Business After 5! And, they took #shoplocal to whole new level, bringing in FOUR local businesses to fill room after room with deliciousness: OPA ExpressGiganti Events Planning and Catering, Noni’s Pizzeria, and Fit To Eat Catering. And wine in every room!

The beautiful holiday lights outside and festive decor inside really put us all in the Christmas spirit, but it was hearing about the incredible work Lynn and her team are doing OUTSIDE of real estate that really brought the meaning of Community and Christmas home. They really are community supporters at heart, and involved with organizations and events that help those in need right here in Grimsby. Stacy from GBF Community Services summed up Lynn’s extraordinary focus on community when she said “I didn’t realize how big her heart is” and told us how Lynn’s concern for a local family in need turned her into an advocate for local housing issues.

Thank you, Lynn and team!

November 7 Networking Breakfast at Carnegie Hall

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our last Chamber Breakfast of the 2019 calendar year. We were excited to see some of the fantastic members and businesses that help make the Chamber thrive, and to welcome new faces to the crowd! We were all inspired by FORT and the amazing things they do in the community to help our youth find a place to/space to belong! Great organizations like FORT help ensure everyone in our community has the opportunity to succeed and participate.

We were delighted to present FORT with a cheque from the Grimsby Chamber, representing a portion of the proceeds from our 2019 Golf Tournament. We are proud to help support the wonderful work FORT does!

And, we can’t forget to mention the delicious breakfast and hot coffee catered in by Station 1 CoffeeHouse!

The Chamber’s Executive Director, Rebecca Shelley, gave an overview of the work, events, and initiatives that the Grimsby Chamber participates in, generating relationships and resources behind the scenes, to further the Grimsby business community: from collaborating with our Chamber colleagues in West Niagara, to working with the Grimsby Economic Development Advisory Committee on the recent Mayor’s Breakfast, to participating in the YWCA‘s Leadership Summit for Women (an incredible event that focuses on the amazing work women in Niagara are doing to make a better environment for all), to attending the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce’s Niagara Economic Summit (ask us about Tomorrow’s Workforce, Liveable Cities, and Gamechangers…the GNCC sure knows how to put on an exceptional, relevant, thought-provoking event!)…your Chamber is hard at work for YOU!

Niagara Networks 2019 at Fallsview Casino

Thank you for joining us at the annual Niagara Networks at Fallsview Casino on Wednesday, September 18. We were thrilled at how many businesses and members were there creating connections.

We were honoured to have the opportunity to sit down with the Honourable Ross Romano, Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities, before the event, to discuss ways the province can remove redtape for businesses and address the labour shortage. The Minister addressed the crowd as well, thanking the hard-working businesses for their many contributions to our economy and to the success of our Province.

The venue was beautiful and we can’t thank our hosts, the South Niagara Chambers, enough for arranging this event! We look forward to next year already!
