We will Remember Them."

LADIES AUXILIARY:  Hi Everyone! Well, summer’s over and now it’s time to get back into gear. We had some bookings in July and August. Now we’re ready to get ready for the fall and winter seasons. In October we have a full month of dinners and late lunches. In November we will participate in the Remembrance Day parade. Then we will get prepared for Christmas with many dinners to prepare.  If there is anybody that has some spare time to lend a hand, please let myself or Cathy Buzzell know. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Everyone has a great fall season.   Rose LaFont, President 

 

BURSARY:      Over the summer months several thank you cards were received from students expressing gratitude for their Branch Bursary. A thank you card was also received from Renfrew Collegiate Institute expressing thanks for the Legions continuous support to the granting of Bursaries.  

The Provincial Bursary Assistance program is now open to accept applications. Applications are available in the Legion office or maybe found on line at the Legions website. Members please help to get the word out that these bursaries are available to qualifying students in the amount of $750.00. This past school year two Renfrew students received a Provincial Bursary.

MEMBERSHIP:  The 2019 Early Bird campaign began September 1. Please feel free to stop into either the office (during office hours) or in the Lounge to pay your 2020 dues, or you may pay online through the Royal Canadian Legion website.  Please support your branch. 

Rob Marsh, Membership Chair 

 

POPPY:      Greetings, Comrades. November 11 is fast approaching. This is the one time of the year when we remember and give thanks for the men and women who laid down their lives for their freedom. It is also the only time of the year when we raise funds to assist their families and our veterans and their families who are still living.  The way that we do this is through our Poppy Campaign. The campaign runs from October 25 through to November 11. Our “Tagging” days this year are November 1 and 2. The sign-up chart is on the bulletin board. PLEASE plan to take at least 2 hours on either or both of these days to help distribute poppies. It is only through YOUR VOLUNTEERING that we can assist our veterans. We are also looking for volunteers to distribute the wreaths in Renfrew. 
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.Bruce Ferguson, Poppy Chair 

 

 

WAYS & MEANS:  Draws are doing well on Fridays and Saturdays. Thanks to all who help.  Richard Fitzsimmons, Ways & Means Chair 

 

FINANCE:  The Finance Committee met on August 27, 2019. Donations of $500 were recommended and approved to the following:  Youth Education District G to assist with the cost of prizes; Renfrew Scouts for camp upgrades; Community Living; Renfrew’s Salvation Army to help with the Thanksgiving dinner; Renfrew Food Bank; and the Renfrew Pipes & Drums.

1ST RENFREW SCOUTS:  Hope everyone had an enjoyable summer with lots of adventures. Our adventure continues with the Scouting movement. Registration already started but it is not to late for any to join as a youth or leader.  Our meetings are mostly at St Thomas School sometimes we will have them at the Scout Camp at Herds Lake, Beavers meet on Tuesday nights and Scouts are on Wednesday. This year with having a few Cubs we are trying them with the Scouts on Wednesday if we get enough out we will let them have their own nights. 

Our groups participate with 2 big fundraisers which are apple Day which was September 28th and in the spring we do tree planting. If you know anyone who would like to help us out and want trees planted on their property contact me and we will talk. 

We also support the Legion by doing Poppy Tagging and participates in the Remembrance Day Parade.  We camp several times a year as well as fish maybe some times at our meeting times. We listen to what the youth want to do and then work it into our programs. Let us help the youth create memories.       Yours in Scouting, Susan Fleming   (sue_is_bubbles23@hotmail.com

OH!Tourism Summit is an event you don't want to miss: here's why.

View this email in your browser

 

 

October 23 can’t come soon enough! We look forward to welcoming you to the OH!Tourism Summit, OHTO’s ninth annual tourism conference and AGM, held on October 23 in Pembroke. In honour of our ninth conference, here's a countdown of the top nine reasons to join us at #OHSUM2019! 

Register Now

 

9. Celebrate Another Great Season

For many tourism operators, the busy season has just wrapped up and you may be closing up shop or slowing down for the winter. Celebrate your successes with us, take a little day trip up to Pembroke, and have a good time!
 

8. Treat Yourself

Did we mention the conference will be catered by local favourite Ullrich’s? They’ll be serving up a delicious seasonal menu including a light breakfast, hearty lunch, refreshments, and hors d’oeuvres.
 

7. Listen to Informative Presentations

Our first presenter is Lisa LaVecchia, President and CEO of Destination Ontario, will present on leveraging your reach through partnerships with examples worth celebrating. Beth Potter, President and CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO), will follow Lisa’s presentation with a talk on pressing policy issues affecting the growth of tourism and the various ways to ensure the provincial government addresses them.
 

6. Get the Chance to Win Big

Simply put, this year’s grand prize is #OHSUM. Just by attending the OH!Tourism Summit, you will be entered to win a professional photoshoot with one of OHTO’s preferred photographers, Gabe’s Images. Gabe will come to your business, conduct a photoshoot, and provide you with up to 50 images – all entirely free of cost. Good luck!
 

5. Increase Your Network

You asked for more networking time, and we listened. Catch up with old friends and mingle with new acquaintances with a local craft beverage sample in hand, during our informal networking hour at the end of the conference.
 

4. Hear From Your Peers

After a delicious lunch, we’ll hear from a hand-picked panel of individuals from tourism businesses and organizations in Ontario’s Highlands who have experienced how partnerships can drive visitation. The panelists are ready to share their story and answer your questions.
 

3. Make the Most of Your Resources

We understand that time is money for small business owners, but we think spending a day on professional development and networking is worth the investment. If you can spare a day away from your business, for only $40 + HST, you will get a valuable opportunity to learn, grow, and mingle.
 

2. Get Retrospective

Find out what we’ve been up to this year with our annual operational update and AGM. As we approach ten years as an organization we will be looking back at how far we have come together!
 

1. We're All in This Together

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. The theme of the conference this year is Stronger Together: Growing Tourism Through Collaboration. Join us to explore how together, we are growing tourism and becoming Ontario’s most talked about region.

The Nuts and Bolts of International Trade: Incoterms® 2020

 

It is easy to think international trade is all about convoluted acronyms that describe trade agreements that take a long time to negotiate. A sampling of the ones you have probably heard about recently include CPTPP, CETA and CUSMA.

 

Indeed, the trade world is not short of acronyms, but here is another crucial one for businesses to know called Incoterms®, which stands for International Commercial Terms.

 

Updated every 10 years, Incoterms® are developed by the International Chamber of Commerce to act as a common set of rules between exporters and importers in the course of international trade in goods. The reason they are used by buyers and sellers is that they provide a mutual understanding of who bears the costs and responsibilities at various stages of international trade transactions. Not using the appropriate Incoterms®, or at least the one you thought you were using, greatly affects a company’s bottom line. For this reason, we have partnered with Forum for International Trade Training to help Canadian businesses get up to speed on these new rules with a series of training sessions.

 

Read this month’s 5 Minutes for Business to learn more about how your business can navigate this acronym-saturated, but crucial, world.

 

 

"New to the Frew"

 

 

 

The annual Newcomers Night will be held on Wednesday November 20th at the Royal Canadian Legion Renfrew from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please share this event and welcome our new residents to the community.

Showcase your business.  

Display tables are

available to promote your business and welcome our new neighbours for only $10.00 per table. If you would like to be a part of this evening contact the Chamber office to book your table. Space is limited.

 

 

 

 

Mission Statement:

The Renfrew & Area Chamber of Commerce is a member organization delivering value to our business community with a focus on advocacy, education and networking. We will be recognized as the Voice of Business for Renfrew and surrounding area, dedicated to working with stakeholders to help our community thrive.

Mark Your Calendars for the Biggest Tourism Conference in Ontario's Highlands
Every fall, tourism champions from across Ontario’s Highlands gather for the largest tourism conference in the region to share best practices, network, and learn from industry experts. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 23, 2019 and join us for OH!Tourism Summit 2019 as we explore the power of partnerships and how together, we are growing tourism and becoming Ontario's most talked about region! This year, we’ll be gathering at Germania Club Pembroke to explore the theme of Stronger Together: Growing Tourism Through Collaboration. Watch your inbox and the conference website for future announcements and in the meantime, save the date!

Tips for Sharing Events
We are thrilled to hear about more and more events being dreamed up and developed across Ontario’s Highlands! Visitor events can be a lot of fun, but are also a lot of work. On top of all the planning, coordinating, and set-up tasks, there is the challenge of marketing the event to drum up attendance. This month on our Come Wander Industry Blog, we give our top three suggestions for simple, quick, and free ways to help spread the word. Please click here to read the full post.

The Guardian Includes Haliburton on Fall Colour Round Up
We already know how incredible the fall colours are in Ontario's Highlands, but thanks to The Guardian's article 10 Unmissable Autumn Experiences in Ontario, British travellers may soon be booking their trip to Haliburton, which was listed in the article.
 
Two Local Blogs Highlight Neat Coffee Shop
Not one, but two local lifestyle blogs did a feature on Neat Coffee Shop last month. Apartment 613 put together a great piece on why Neat should be on the radar of all music lovers in Ottawa, if it isn't already, and Narcity Ottawa wrote about why its readers should pay the Burnstown cafe a visit.
 
CBC Shines Light on New Lanark County Experiences
Two new Lanark County experiences were the focus of recent CBC Ottawa articles. Owners of the newly opened Gaslight Cafe & Sign Gallery spoke to CBC about their unique space in Almonte, while Perth operator, The Axe Shop, explained what their new 'rage cage' is all about.
 
Round Up Lists Featuring Ontario's Highlands
It was a busy month with quite a few other operators or locations featured in various round-up list articles by local media. StyleDemocracy.ca chose Grail Springs Retreat as one of the wellness retreats near Toronto to visit while Narcity Toronto urged readers to check out Egan Chutes Provincial Park. Narcity Ottawa's list of late August activities saw both The Great Water War event in Renfrew and the heritage canoe paddle in Smiths Falls make the list.
 
Lanark Cottage Getaway Profiled on KiMagic.com
The folks behind KiMagic.com wrote about their getaway to a cottage on Long Lake in Lanark County, and what they did in Perth and the surrounding area to keep busy, including Stewart Park Festival.
