Gath­er­ing closes out Busi­ness Af­ter Hours 2018

Dalby Herald - - LIFE -

THE fi­nal Busi­nesses Af­ter Hours event for 2018 was held on Tues­day night at White Prop­erty Group.

Mem­bers of the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try caught up to chat about the year that was, and the Christ­mas sea­son that is kick­ing into gear.

The De­cem­ber cer­tifi­cate of ap­pre­ci­a­tion was awarded to Colin Wat­ters, the Donut Man.

“If you had to have a dic­tionary def­i­ni­tion of some­one who gives and is part of the Dalby com­mu­nity, and who is a known land­mark in the Dalby com­mu­nity, it’s Colin Wat­ters,” Cham­ber pres­i­dent Ro­han May said.

“If you go to an event here in Dalby, be it the cancer Re­lay for Life or up the main street on a Satur­day, Colin is there, cheer­ful and greet­ing.”

Mr Wat­ters de­scribed the award as a to­tal sur­prise.

“I joined the Cham­ber to be a part of the com­mu­nity, a bit more than I have been, and the doors just keep open­ing,” he said.

Bruce White of White Prop­erty Group also spoke at the evening about their busi­ness and how it had evolved dur­ing the past 22 years.

“Per­son­ally, the past has been both chal­leng­ing and re­ward­ing; I’m chuffed at both,” Mr White said.

“My par­ents and my broth­ers gave me the free­dom to pur­sue my pas­sion for real es­tate, for the first 20 years as a side­line to my day job, run­ning White In­dus­tries, and for the past two years it’s be­come a full time job.”

Mr White de­scribed White Prop­erty Group’s long list of real es­tate trans­ac­tions with a num­ber of past and present Dalby busi­nesses and partners.

The Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try will be closed from De­cem­ber 24 to Jan­uary 7.
