STEWIACKE – More than 30 businesses and organizations will be featured at what could be the first of an annual expo here.
Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce.
The Truro and Colchester Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 2014 Stewiacke business and lifestyles expo at the community centre on Feb. 26.
“The chamber changed its name just over a year ago and our membership area includes Stewiacke,” said Alan Johnson, chamber executive director. “The chamber got together with some key business people in Stewiacke and the surrounding area to come up with an idea to support the businesses in Stewiacke and area.”
From 4 to 8 p.m., the community centre will be filled with various table and video displays, as well as demonstrations.
“There will be a number of new businesses, such as Simply Uplifting and Natural Nutrition, a new health food store. With all of the new businesses and growth in the area, we thought it was a good time to show it off,” Johnson said.
At last count, there are about 20 memberships with the chamber that are from the Stewiacke and area, and Johnson hopes the expo will bring in more.
“There will be a good, well-rounded group of organizations and businesses on display at the expo,” he said.
Admission is free, with door prizes and refreshments.
