Chamber of Commerce talks transportation, recognizes businesses

The most recent Yorkton Chamber of Commerce Luncheon recognized local businesses and talked about opportunities for the future.

At the beginning of the lunch, businesses that have been Chamber members for 20-25 years were recognized, including Brendonn Holdings, Blaze Locksmithing, Parkland Printers, Canadian Tire and D.R. Auto Extras.

Juanita Polegi, Executive Director of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce, said they feel it’s important to recognize these businesses because they have invested in the community and want to give the local Chamber of Commerce a strong voice.

“Obviously, they recognize the value that the Chamber brings to the community. The more voices we have, the stronger voice we have when we approach any order of government.”

That presentation was followed by one by Stevyn Arnt, talking about the Global Transportation Hub outside of Regina. Polegi felt it was important to clear up misconceptions about the hub and bring someone knowledgeable to talk about it to area businesses.
