Dignitaries met on the front steps of Penticton City Hall on Monday to celebrate a birthday.
In recognition of the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce 110th anniversary this year, Mayor Andrew Jakubeit proclaimed “Chamber Week.”
Chamber President Michael Magnusson said a strong chamber is crucial for a city.
“We couldn’t do it without the city, and we’d like to hope that the city can’t do it without us, in the sense that every city needs commerce and commerce obviously needs a city to thrive.”
“I like to look at as a symbiotic relationship, and if we can further the quality of life in Penticton through the growth of business and an extended tax base, jobs for workers… then it's a win-win for everyone,” he added.
A series of events will be running this week to mark the anniversary. Details can be found online.
