On Wednesday July 16th, the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and event sponsor Digby Leigh & Company held the annual Summer Soiree atop picturesque Grouse Mountain. The event featured stunning views, delicious hors d’oeuvres and live jazz courtesy of the Nikko Whitworth Trio. Guests also had the opportunity to arrive early and take advantage of everything Grouse Mountain has to offer, including the Wildlife Refuge, the grizzly bear habitat and the world-famous lumberjack show
The event also served as introduction to our new Chamber Board and a celebration of those members who have reached milestone anniversaries in their membership. Our two newest board members, David Kim of the BDC and Pararin Rahmani of North Shore Law, were sworn in by Jim Belsheim, president of Neptune Terminals and the immediate past chair of the BC Chamber of Commerce.
Congratulations to all of our Milestone Members, we recognize and salute your dedication to the Chamber! Click here to see a full list of our members celebrating anniversary milestones in 2014.
