CORNWALL, Ontario – In what has become a Cornwall tradition, Team Cornwall will host the popular Year in Review meeting on Wednesday December 12.
Each year for over 20 years, the City’s Economic Development Department has compiled a report of major investments, achievements and other positive events that has taken place over the past year. That report is presented at the annual gathering of well over 300 businesses and community leaders who are eager to hear a recap of the year’s economic activity. Once again the meeting will be held at Galaxy Cinemas on Second St. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp.
The Year in Review report summarizes major development activity that has occurred in Cornwall over the past 12 months.
“2018 was another busy year in Cornwall, with positive activity in a variety of sectors,” said Bob Peters, Division Manager of Economic Development with the City of Cornwall. “It is always interesting to highlight the various investments that have been made in the City and to acknowledge the accomplishments of both private and public sector organizations.”
Team Cornwall has hosted the meeting since 1998, and although its members make up a large portion of the audience, the meeting is open to all. As always, the meeting is expected to attract a number of special guests from outside the region.
“Cornwall Economic Development does an excellent job in preparing the Year in Review presentation,” said Peter Gault. “It is exciting to recap the success of the past year so that we can all take that information and share it with people beyond the boundaries of Cornwall.”
A bazaar featuring one-of-a-kind gift ideas from over a dozen local artists and vendors will once again tempt attendees as they exit the theatre. The popular bazaar is organized by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.
Tickets to the Year in Review meeting are $20 each. To purchase a ticket, please call Melissa Sterling at 613-938-9400 or drop in to the Cornwall Economic Development office at the Civic Complex. Cash, Visa, Mastercard or Interac are accepted. Tickets can also be purchased online.
Space is limited to the first 300 people, so organizers strongly encourage people to purchase their tickets in advance.
