It was an evening of well-de­served pomp and cir­cum­stance for the busi­ness com­mu­nity March 1 as the Ex­ploits Re­gional Cham­ber of Com­merce cel­e­brated its own.

“It’s im­por­tant to rec­og­nize busi­nesses for the things they do in the com­mu­nity to make it stronger,” cham­ber pres­i­dent Lou Al­teen told the Ad­ver­tiser. “There are many who go above and be­yond in what they do ev­ery day.”

Or­ga­niz­ers were please with at­ten­dance at the event, held at the Royal Cana­dian Legion, as well as the crop of nom­i­nees. Al­teen said there were a num­ber of new en­trants this year and that the mix of old and new busi­nesses is ex­actly what any cham­ber wants in terms of ac­tive mem­ber­ship.

The cham­ber will hold its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing next month, where a new ex­ec­u­tive will be elected. Rob Sills of Mary Brown’s will be­come pres­i­dent in Al­teen’s place.

“He’s go­ing to do a re­ally good job,” the cur­rent pres­i­dent said.


Win­ners and in­ductees to the busi­ness hall of fame were feted at the Ex­ploits Re­gional Cham­ber of Com­merce busi­ness awards March 1.
