The Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce celebrated its 25th anniversary on Saturday, January 23 at the 4-H Centre.  It was evident that the chamber is very much in a time of significant renewal with many in attendance recognizing the importance of the work the chamber is doing to help promote business community in the Pigeon Lake region and increasing awareness of the region as a place to “Live, Play & Prosper.”

A highlight of the evening was the presentation to Gordon and Alene Liske, Liske Travel, a lifetime membership to the chamber.  The Liskes were charter members of the chamber and have retained their membership for the full 25 years.  In accepting their lifetime membership plaque they acknowledged the importance of the chamber and how impressed they are with the continued efforts of the chamber to represent the interests of its members that are located throughout the Pigeon Lake region.

In her welcoming comments Kathy Rooyakkers, reeve of the County of Wetaskiwin, acknowledged the efforts of the chamber as it works to increase awareness of the Pigeon Lake region and represent its members.

During his presentation Rodger Cole, president of the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, acknowledged the contributions that founding members and volunteers have made throughout the first 25 years and the importance of their work in establishing the foundation for the years ahead.

Three new members attended the event and with their membership the Chamber now boasts more than 100 members on its roster.

Examples of the some of the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce projects now underway include the pending release of “Fun Map 2016” in both electronic and print versions as well as “Ice Golf 2016” scheduled for March 12.
