On April 28th the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce held their 10th WEYBEX Awards. I want to thank all of the sponsors, finalists, winners and attendees on helping the Chamber put on yet another successful event. Congratulations to MegaDry Disaster Restoration, Farm Credit Canada, Maurer’s Meats and Bill Vollbrecht for winning in their categories. I would like to make an honorable mention to Miller Well Servicing and Weimer’s Hometown, whom were inducted into the Weyburn Chamber Business Hall of Fame. Weyburn is a great place to do business and the longevity, dedication and commitment to the community are recognized.
Our next commitment to you our members is to provide you opportunity to ask questions to the candidates who have put their name forward in the City of Weyburn Municipal By-Election. The Weyburn Chamber will be holding an All-Candidates Forum on Thursday May 18th from 10:00am – 12:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion. All four candidates will be in attendance, and we look forward to hearing more about their platforms and the ways they plan to help our businesses. We will be offering this as a hybrid event. If you require the Zoom link please email Executive Director, Monica Osborn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions from our Chamber members are greatly appreciated, but we understand some would like to remain anonymous. For questions that you would like the Chamber to ask during the forum submit them no later than Wednesday May 17th to email@example.com.
Congratulations to our board member Jordan Szczecinski on receiving the YF Wives Women of Distinction Award for Community Service. We have seen on our own board the dedication that Jordan provides to her community and is a great leader and mentor! Thank you to the YF Wives for taking on the Women of Distinction Awards and ensuring that the recognition continues.
Currently Weyburn Regional Economic Development has a survey in circulation that is seeking your participation to help us understand what our future investment opportunities are in our community. This survey will be coming through a third-party facilitator to compile the information that we are seeking. Your input to help our economic development and growth plays an important role. Please fill out the survey as there will be a prize of a $100 Gift Card for those who participate.
We encourage you to attend our events this upcoming year and provide any feedback by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 306-842-4738 or feel free to stop into the Chamber office at 11 3rd street, Weyburn.
