September Chamber Connections
The Chamber is honored to work side by side with the Chilliwack Chiefs to bring acknowledgement and awareness to Truth and Reconciliation Day at our September Connections. We are fortunate to welcome guest speakers; Francis Horne and daughter Simone to share stories which will assist in the learnings of Orange Shirt day and its significance. Francis is a 60's swoop survivor and the son of a residential school survivor, Simone is the artist and designer of this year's Orange Shirt day.
Our evening will start off in a unique setting, as we gather for our presentation in The Chiefs private training studio. Due to the nature and sensitivity of this presentation, we will serve non-alcoholic beverages and a small bannock snack during this portion of the the evening. We ask for a 5PM sharp start time for this event as warm up starts at 6:25PM.
As you will all be recognized as witnesses to these stories, you will be gifted an Orange Shirt on behalf of the story tellers, the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce and Sto:lo Community Futures.
After the presentation, we will head upstairs to the Molson Fan Deck to enjoy a complimentary beverage, light appetizers and your opportunity to network with other community businesses before and during the game. Following the networking portion, we invite you to stay up on the Fan Deck to cheer on the Chilliwack Chiefs or join the fans in the stands.
*This Connections will run a bit differently from past Connections. Each attendee will receive a ticket to the game. Due to space and the high level of interest, this event we will not be opening registration for non-members until September 5th.
