President’s Message – Summer Wishes from the Fenelon Chamber (July 2017)

YOUR CHAMBER of COMMERCE quarterly update

FFDCC Logo JPEG copyI would like to take this opportunity to THANK all those Chamber Members and friends of the Chamber who have volunteered their time and skills to make Fenelon Falls THE JEWEL OF THE KAWARTHA’s. I am most impressed with our volunteer base in Fenelon Falls with the Chamber of Commerce and other community groups. It is many hands that make things happen.

Here is a short list of what the Chamber has accomplished in the 2nd quarter of 2017

  • One of our main tasks is the implementation of the actions that have been reviewed and approved by the City Council for “DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION”. There are many people that are required to ensure that all tasks are managed and implemented. For a complete list of tasks that need to happen and other interesting information about Fenelon Falls visit http://www.advantagekawarthalakes.ca/en/keySectors/fenelon-falls-downtown-revitalization.asp or drop into our Chamber Office by the locks.
  • The 2017 Kawartha Lakes Country Living Show was the most successful ever based on attendance and in conversations with the vendors and customers at the show. A HUGE thanks to Monica Jardine and her team in making this happen. We had an increase in attendance by 25%. Thanks to all our sponsors, supporters, vendors and customers.
  • CANADA DAY is almost here and there have been a lot of preparations by the Canada Day Committee to make this happen. The entire day is filled with activities topped off by a huge fireworks display at Garnet Graham Park celebrating Canada’s 150. Thank you Doug Elmslie and your team.
  • Your Special Events Committee has been very active again this year and we would like to thank all those who have sponsored this committee making Fenelon Falls the place to shop. Please remember that Midnight Madness is happening on July 8th so come out and support your local merchants.
  • We have a new addition to our Chamber office this summer. Please drop in and say hi to Rylea Rea who has joined our team to help out. She focused on running our Tourism Office and is very excited to help inform visitors from near and far of the wonderful ways our village shines. Do you have a special place in Fenelon that we shouldn’t keep secret? Why not drop us a note or give us a call. Email Rylea at info@fenelonfallschamber.com or reach her by phone at 705-887-3409.
  • Our downtown beautification committee has been working very hard and we would like to thank the Fenelon Falls Horticultural Society and our local businesses for the flowers on the light poles, bridge and hanging from the stores. They look FANTASTIC!
  • The Chamber has made a generous donation to the Rotary Club in support of the splash pad. We are looking forward to seeing it up and running by midsummer. Good Luck!

On behalf of the Fenelon Falls Chamber of Commerce I would like to wish you all a GREAT SUMMER. Please take a moment to drop in and see us.

Your Chamber of Commerce
