The newly elected Canowindra Business Chamber committee and members met last Monday night at the Canowindra Services Club.
The Canowindra Business Chamber is looking to support applications for funding for the painting of the concrete silos, and looking at the potential of a regional Silo Trail. Apparently there are various local parties interested in the silo precinct, and the Chamber asks that they contact Graeme Beasley at the Old Vic Inn, prior to the next meeting on 20 June 2018, so that their activities can be taken into account in any future plans.
The Chamber is looking forward to supporting commemorations for the 100 year anniversary of WWI around Remembrance Day this year with Christine Sampson from the RSL Sub branch attending the meeting to discuss this. The Chamber has also received a great suggestion about bidding for a visit to Canowindra from the Melbourne Cup and will look into this for 2019.
The meeting heard from Graham and Jan Kerr that the 2018 Canowindra International Balloon Challenge was a great success again this year, and they are looking forward to next year.
The Chamber also spoke about the Canowindra Community Bank and when it will open, which is not too far away. The Chamber are always looking for new members to join and have placed suggestion boxes around town at the Newsagency and Bottle Shop for those interested to have their say.
The next meeting will be a breakfast meeting on Wednesday 20th June at 8am with the venue to be advised at a later date.
