SPREADING HOLIDAY CHEER
In December the Chamber hosted it's first annual Moonlight & Mistletoe Holiday Shopping Event. With it we asked and encouraged all businesses to decorate their storefronts with festive cheer.
Then residents of Arnprior rocked the vote and 2 businesses took home the prize for most festive store front.
Congratulations once again to W.O. Stinson & Son Ltd. and The Vintage Crate.

We know how much of a struggle 2020 was and 2021 continues to be to the business community, especially small business.
With this in mind, The GACC is proud to announce a newly created sponsorship program. Businesses can made a donation to support the membership of a fellow business owner who may be struggling at this time. Donations can be made in any amount and your business can select the specific business they wish to help or leave it open for the Chamber to assign a business that reaches out.
Now more then ever it is important as a community we stick together and help our neighbour.
