More than a dozen home-based businesses got a chance to network at the Valemount Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting and mini trade show last week.

The event drew about 50 people to the Eagle’s View room at the Best Western and included appetizers, a cash bar, and a draw for two Oilers game tickets.

Several presenters took the opportunity to give updates, including Diane Fowler and Christine on the Tourism Valemount Committee, Rick Thompson on the Rural Advisory Council and Silvio Gislimberti on the Valemount Business Walk.

The new Chamber board includes Rashmi Narayan, Justin Hooke, Christine Latimer, Diane Fowler, Marie Birkbeck, Patricia Thoni, Hollie Blanchette, Tammy VandeNobelen, Kari Clay, Mike Johnson.
