Chamber members gather in the lobby of Samuels for introductions. A spread of food and white Christmas tree in the background.

Great discussion took place against the festive backdrop of Samuels Boutique Hotel as members gathered for the last Business After 5 of 2023 on Dec. 21.

Long-time residents and new residents of Goderich discussed the benefits of this community, including career opportunities, pace of life, housing prices, beachfront and sunsets, and more. They also talked about the opportunities for the town to grow its economy, including the flight school and port. And they swapped stories that ranged from electric vehicles to lithium, travel to airlines.

They also toured the boutique hotel, tucked along the Maitland riverfront in Saltford, with its 14 rooms and spacious upstairs suite. Host Elena prepared a table of treats for guests and held a draw. She reminds members that contractors are welcome through the winter.

Members are invited to host BA5s, which are held the third Thursday of every month. Call 519-440-0176 today to discuss your hosting opportunity.
